Trivia

The film bears many resemblances to the original Die Hard film, with Zoey very similar to John McClane. The main character avoids the initial hostage takeover, to then run around the building causing mischief for the antagonists. The antagonists use walkie talkie systems to communicate. When the police arrive Tristan says that it's early but not unexpected, which is nearly a direct quote from Hans Gruber. See more »

Goofs

Unlike what goes on when father of the hero uses his sniper rifle, school windows don't get holes in them when they are shot - they break. See more »

Quotes

Zoe Hull: You see, it's tempting to let nature run its course. The lungs will fill with blood. And the animal will die naturally. But with that process comes extreme pain. And it just isn't right to let it suffer. Or is it?

15 January 2021 | by thethomasfamily-79545See all my reviews

A decent Thriller which focuses on the intrinsic value of heroism and selflessness rather than glamorizing and glorifying violence. It does not set out to prove or relay an agenda. This movie is a story of courage in the face of psychological trauma. It's not Citizen Kane, but it's a solid watch with good editing, good acting and a solid art direction. The trailer gave off heavy Die Hard vibes but the movie itself is nothing like it.

Critics won't like it because it provides virtually no political commentary and places all of its value on the importance of courage and doesn't focus on the broader issues at play besides the ubiquitous issue of self-obsession and social media infamy. Conservatives would like it more if they had touched on the issue of nihilism, but again, this movie isn't for the right or the left, it's for everyone.

In recent years, professional critics are most often concerned with the message they want to see, often using phrases such as "this movie provides social commentary which will undoubtedly make the audience think" rather than immersing themselves in the story the movie wants to tell. Comparable to the "problem" with "Hillbilly Elegy", which sets out to tell a story and does it well. Critics don't like it because they don't like the overall message.

Anyway, 7/10, great movie for a night-in with the wife if you're in the mood for a Thriller
