I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! Halle berry does a great job of keeping you interested along with the other main characters who seem to do an excellent job of convincing you. There's a lot if emotion from crazy to sad and you'll find yourself rooting for this poor little girl throughout the whole movie. The suspense pushes this past the rest of the pack! A-plus!

I had read mixed reviews on this, but 4 of us decided to go, anyway. We were so glad we had ignored the negative reviews. There were some flaws in parts of the movie, but we were all captured by the action from a few minutes into the movie and the tension never let go! Halle Berry is good. Abigail Breslin is good. The male psychopath was good. We did leave with some unanswered questions which could have better been answered in the movie, but all it did for us was to make for interesting speculation over dinner. As we left the theater, several people were having reactions similar to ours.
If I had any criticism, it would have been for the directing. A couple of scenes needed some fleshing out, but the criticism is not strong enough to keep me from recommending this movie. If you like intense, GO! (Not for kids or early adolescents!)

This was a good movie. However, I wold not watch it again. It was rated R and I was expecting a jump out of my seat scare and this movie did not do that. I enjoyed the cast and the plot was great, but I just do not think it should have been rated R.

Based on the trailer, I was afraid it was going to be a movie that Halle Berry should not be in, but I still decided to see it. I was pleasantly surprised. The movie leaves you on the edge of your seat, and at one point, I actually cried. The movie kinda makes you piece some things together yourself, but I loved it. The person I went to see it with was really against it at first, but left saying 'that was a pretty good movie.' Go see if you have the chance.
