I wasnt expecting too much from this flick. I went ahead and watched it because I'm a huge Gabrielle Union fan.
I was impressed with how there were small details about the aesthetic of the film that captured my interest. The small mundane font that was used for the opening credits made it have an indie film feel, which immeadiatley caught my eye. As the film went on, I could see how the dialogue was slightly disjointed but got to the point in a timely way. Union's performance was pretty awesome, just because she has such a command of the screen. She really personified that emblem of a mother trying to protect her babies. The writing of the film wasn't the best. That did get mildly in the way of the overall effect the film could've had. In short it was an enjoyable thriller/action flick.
