Storyline

The happily-married couple of Neil and Abby Randall have worked very hard to create a healthy and safe bubble for themselves and their only daughter, Sophie. However, their seemingly idyllic life will start crumbling into pieces when, out of the blue, the determined and methodical gunman, Tom Ryan, holds them captive, as his cold-blooded accomplice uses Sophie for leverage. Now, Abby and Neil have no other choice but to do Tom's bidding if they want to keep their child alive--and with every task they successfully perform--they see a piece of their orderly life being robbed from them. But, why is this perfect stranger bent on destroying three innocents? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

The Latin Spanish dub of the film was done in Venezuela, so for the clip of 'For Your Ed Only' played on the hotel TV, new voice actors were brought in for the characters, presumably because the originals could not be reached; Jorge Bringas voiced Ed, Sebastián Torres voiced Edd, Eduardo Ojeda voiced Eddy and Ivanna Ochoa voiced Sarah.

As Neil and Abby prepare to get out the car to go into the bank, you hear Tom say ' ... you'll never see your daughter again' but as the camera cuts to Tom, his lips do not move on the last words of that sentence. See more »

We Liked This Film A Lot
3 January 2008 | by kyndellsemailSee all my reviews

I'd never heard of this movie until it showed up on DVD sites a couple of weeks ago. Then I read the comments here and thought, "Pass." But there was not much to choose from the other night, and the suspense/mystery/thriller genre is my favotire these days, so ... I picked it up. Glad I did because my wife and I enjoyed the movie. Certainly not a GREAT film, but very good. I liked the story, the film was nice and short, good characters. And we loved the ending and the twists. They were very clever. Overall, a solid suspense drama. Too bad this film didn't get released. Saw 4, on the other hand, goes wide and makes a ton.
