Edge of the Seat Thriller - with a few laughs

We went Friday night....and what the other reviewers say is true - everyone was yelling at her, telling her what to do....we were all sitting on the edge of our seats! Halle Berry is great - it has a pretty crazy story....and the ending certainly was not predictable but YAY!

OMG - Intense!!

By Nana Georgia

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!)

The excellent plot, compelling performances by all the actors and the fast pace of the movie all contributed to making this a very good, non-stop thriller. Definitely worth seeing!

You will enjoy this movie if: 1. You go in with low expectations 2. You are willing to suspend disbelief Warning, possible spoilers What is good: Cell phones that can keep a 90 minute connection across a large geographic area. What is bad: Most of the acting. What is really bad: The last five minutes of the movie.
