Seth: Shhh, shh, shh. What I just put in you, it's called pancuronium bromide, it's a paralyzing agent. It stings a little. Don't worry, it's safe, I tested it on myself.

Interesting premise but falls apart
26 December 2016 | by just_in_caseSee all my reviews

The movie starts off with a beta male stalker type trying to get this girl to go out with him, then it switches gears with kidnapping. Then things get really interesting, but then things kind of still reach the same destination you kind of see coming early on. Beta male.

It's a shame because the Act II idea was really good, but instead of seeing it through or down a rabbit hole I feel like they ran out of gas and went with a lazy ending. Part of the problem is that the main character's direction flipflops a couple times without any Segue.

I noticed the films only about an hour and a half. I think with a few more drafts and 20 more minutes this couple have been a real shocker but if anything the ending is reminiscent of a tales of the crypt short story. Now that story would have worked better if the main character hadn't done a 180 in Act II.

All in all I gotta say skip it on this one. There's better captor role reversal type films.

Actually if you're looking for a good captive movie I recommend "Chained (2012)" which stars Vincent D'Onofrio who as you know is in the spotlight at the moment. This is by far my favorite in this sub-genre.
