In some 9/11 videos the posters of this movie are visible throughout downtown NYC with the picture of Michael Douglas and the title "Don't say a word" visible, giving it an even creepier sense. See more »
When Sofia opens the door on Mrs Conrad (around 55th minute) and the latter says "Sofia" there's an error in the cut, a house exterior is shown for a few frames. See more »
Here's another interesting kidnap story. Sean Bean always plays a believable villain and Michael Douglas usually plays roles that keep the audience's attention....so the almost- two hours go by pretty quickly. The whole cast, actually, pretty good with no one person standing out.
The story loses points because the ending goes on too long and has the standard villain-holds-the-gun-and-doesn't shoot-too long cliché which drives critics, me included crazy. That, and a bit too many f-words in here by the female cop (Jennifer Esposito) which simply aren't necessary, and a few other holes all reduce this from a sure 9-star to an "8.....but don't misunderstand: it's worth a look.
