Parody of historical epics that focuses on real-life Australian explorers William John Wills and Robert O'Hara Burkes, who tragically tried to cross the Australian continent from the south, to the north, a distance of 3,250 km.
Kyle and Sarah Miller have it all: a huge gated house on the water, fancy cars, and the potential for romance in their relationship. He's just back from a business trip (he brokers diamonds) and their teen daughter Avery is sneaking out to a party, when four thugs in security uniforms and ski masks stage a home invasion. They want what's in the safe: cash and diamonds. Kyle stalls them, trying to negotiate for Sarah's freedom. Over the next few hours, the back stories of the four robbers (two brothers, a girlfriend, and the representative of a local drug kingpin) as well as the fault lines in Kyle and Sarah's marriage come into play. Is there room here for heroism?Written by

One of the worst movies of always good Nicol Kidman and Nicolas Cage. Very mediocre movie, pretty slow developing and no tense pace. About all action goes in one place without any changes regarding drama development. Pleas of the tortured and tyranny of the robbers is about what is going on in most of the movie. But dull plot development is not the most surprising thing in this look like five days shot movie. It is an acting of a great actress Nicol Kidman. I have never seen her acting that bad. As a matter a fact, she is bringing the finest charm to every movie but in this one she looks like an actress just taught how to look hysterical most of the time and that goes for most of the scenes with her. So no, I do not hate this movie, I just felt like falling a sleep from time to time which I find very strange considering the synopsis.
