Goofs

Near the end of the movie, when Lorraine's character is holding the shotgun on Roy right after the car wreck, she fires the gun once over Roy's head, then pumps the shotgun, but no empty shell is ejected, which is impossible. Worse yet, she delivers another line of dialogue and then pumps the shotgun a second time without having fired it again and, once more, no shell is ejected. Roy would have known the gun was empty.

Lorraine Burton: Are you threatening my son now?

Classic sleeping material

Boring would be an understatement. Nothing much to start with and an abrupt ending made the movie a yawwwwn. One and a half hours of drone would sum up the case. The movie didn't even live up to my already low expectations, what with the cast and all. Its another one of those "guy kidnaps girl, threatens her kid, and makes her run around town" movies.

Maria was OK and she did try to do justice to her character, but her character in itself was very weak. I don't know from where they got the kidnapper. How lamer could he get? The kidnapping fraternity was put to shame! There wasn't much to the story line either except for endless driving and idle chitter chatter to increase the runtime. More like watching a soap opera, with a few car chases. There were bits and pieces missing throughout.

Knock yourself out if you have nothing better to do during the day, but this is one movie I would not dearly recommend.
