Ineffective thriller
21 January 2014 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Jack (Brendan Fraser) was imprisoned after accidentally killing someone during an environmental protest. He now has his ex wife as his attorney, and is on the verge of securing his release, only to find himself working outside jail when his own kids find themselves hunted by Tony Baxter (Dominic Purcell) after witnessing him commit murder.

This DVD offering has the right ingredients in place, in regards it's eerie atmosphere and setting, as well as a villain in the shape of Purcell, who has an undeniable presence in these roles that you just wish would be exploited in something better. But it never really comes together, and fails to develop in to a fully satisfying whole, thus never escaping it's restrictive DVD trappings. **
