Typical home invasion thriller
28 September 2014 | by (San Antonio) – See all my reviews

When I saw a trailer for this movie, I immediately was reminded of Obsessed which was a crappy rip off of Fatal Attraction a few years back that also starred Idris Elba. Lo and behold, the movie comes to us from the producer of Obsessed so it suddenly made sense why much like Obsessed this was just another cookie cutter "thriller".

Good: I think Taraji Henson and Idris Elba are great actors and they do what they can with the material which isn't much at all. I will say that I want to see Elba in more villain roles although in better movies. He has a very imposing stance and he could do wonders with the right part. I do like that Henson at least fought back in a realistic matter.

Bad: The movie is just very mediocre. It's not terrible, but I just can't muster any real emotion for it whether it be anger or glee. The plot is typical TV movie fluff with its attempt at suspense being laughable along with the cheesy use of lightning and thunder to describe something ominous. The story happens because Henson is smitten with Elba, but yet she used to work with abused women cases and should have known Elba was bad news because he spends the movie smiling and then just staring and creep around the house. Leslie Bibb plays the typical horny best friend and nothing beyond that. The movie lacks any suspense and it isn't entertaining on a trashy level either. Then there's the supposed twist is very predictable.

Overall, I like the actors involved, but the movie itself was so average that it would be wise to just watch these actors' other movies.
