This is one of those movies that my wife picked out for us to watch several years ago. I thought surely it was some sappy love story as it stars Jennifer A. whom I am not a fan of. The movie did surprise me as it played and the story unfolded. It was well done overall and surely was not of the romance genre. Its fairly believable with a typical business man, his ho-hum life, family, work etc etc and then walks in Jennifer A. who turns it around for him, yet the situation turns violent and the character cannot go to the police or his wife. The ending was well played and thought out with a few unexpected surprise, twists and lots of decent action. It ends with a man doing what he must to survive and protect himself and his future. I recommend watching this movie, its a few years old now but well worth the time.
