This Movie Deserves A LOT More Credit
23 February 2013 | by william_r-41-790699See all my reviews

This movie is not as bad as everyone on here is trying to make it out to be. Actually it's not bad at all. It's a very good film. It had me on the edge of my seat most of the movie. This film is like Rear Window on the road.

The premise of the movie is, a group of friends decide to follow a car they see on an Amber Alert posting on the highway.

When they decide to actually follow the car, the characters do a lot of bickering over what actions they should take, either follow the car or just let the police handle it. Now a lot of people reviewed that they were frustrated with all the bickering. I got really frustrated myself but in a good way. I engaged the entire time. The point of a film is to evoke some type of emotion out of you and frustration was one of them. Just imagine how frustrated the characters were, being in that situation. Me being frustrated with the characters helped me feel what they were feeling.

Some other people reviewed that the characters were under developed. While that may be true, this wasn't a character driven film. This was more plot driven. Given the situation the characters were in, they were developed just enough. The reason you care about the characters is because they went out of their way and put themselves in danger to try and save a young girl who's been kidnapped. You're rooting for the characters the entire movie hoping they are able to save the little girl AND not get caught by the kidnapper. We knew everything we needed to know about the characters, who they were, their relationship with each other, and why they were even on the highway to begin with. That's all we needed to know.

The script, in my opinion, was well written. The dialogue felt too real at times and you don't get that from a lot of films. All the bickering, yes it was annoying, but it worked. It made sense. They were scared not only for themselves but for the little girl too. Certain actions taken by the characters probably were stupid but it works in the context of the film. The protagonist was really passionate about saving the little girl and put herself on the line to try and save her. If there anything I've learned from studying screen writing, it's this, "A character wants something and is having trouble getting it." The protagonist wanted to save the little girl and was having trouble doing it. They were faced with a number of obstacles while trying to save that little girl.

Overall this is a good film and personally, the best found footage film I've seen. It's not a cheesy paranormal/supernatural ghost movie. It's a real issue that we're faced with in this world and that's what made the film so tense and kept you on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend this film. It's very chilling, engaging, and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
