Brad Anderson directs Halle Berry, Abigail Breslin and Michael Eklund in this thriller where a killer traps a teen girl in the boot of his car and a 911 operator must locate her before she disappears.
The first hour of this is tight as a drum. The always reliable and underrated Brad Anderson turns the screws until they squeak. The finale makes the mistake of abandoning its well defined post for a poor man’s retread of The Silence of The Lambs. And while this decision forgoes the strengths of the high concept, it at least gives us a gory wrap up.
