New thriller with Pierce Brosnan, Gerard Butler and Maria Bello. Basically it all boils down to what you'd do to save your kids etc. etc. Yes, little girl gets kidnapped and parents have to run around doing everything psycho says they must...you know the story. At first it just felt like a straight forward thriller with it's safe ending set up, in this case not so. There's plot twists applenty and whether too many is debatable but one thing I can say is it had a KILLER last frame that froze me to the bone...good one for the woman out there.
I sorta expected a little more with this film, not sure what because like I mentioned before, great ending but I think mostly it was because the first 70 minutes felt so conventional and then suddenly I was hammered with plenty of plot turns in a small space of 15 minutes. But that issue aside I'd recommend a rental. Nice to see Butler not screaming and yelling in his Spartan outfit for a change. Mario Bello is well, the same as ALWAYS!! Brosnan fits in comfortably in this role, but doesn't peak his previous 'bad guy' roles as in 'The Matador'!
