Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking site. That would become known as Facebook but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business.
Recently divorced Meg Altman and her daughter Sarah have bought a new home in New York. On their tour around the mansion, they come across the panic room. A room so secure, that no one can get in. When three burglars break in, Meg makes a move to the panic room. But all her troubles don't stop there.

When the bad guys are taping a garden hose to the propane tank, it's clear the tank has an O.P.D. type valve because of the triangular handle on the valve. Overfill Prevention Device valves have an added safety feature; they will not release propane without the proper hose fitting attached, which will depress a spring loaded valve just inside where the fitting screws in. Fittings like what is on the tank end used on gas grills. A simple garden hose would not release the valve. Therefore, when the valve is opened, no gas would have been released. See more »
He'll do something.
No he won't.
He'll call the police.
You don't know her, mom. She won't let him.
No, he knows there is trouble. He heard me. He's right across the park. That's why we got houses so close to each other. Just in case we needed each other. He'll help us!
Yes he will!
No, I'm sorry. I was trying not to tell you.

The film's VHS & HDTV release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than on DVD. See more »
This movie is a nice piece of work! Those expecting or needing an edgy film ala Seven or Fight Club, don't bother. This movie does not pretend or intend to be what it is not. The camera work is great, the photography is great, and the acting is note-perfect given the script.
Nothing over-ambitious and the Fincher flick with the most appropriate running time and the least false notes so far. This is a classic thriller, much better than the negative reviews from other people led me to believe.
The photography is perfect for the movie. That includes the virtual camera work. Yes it looks like a David Fincher movie, but no it is not intentionally depressing and ugly as his others. The lighting works with the settings (3am in a huge house.)
Yes it's violent, that's why it's R rated. No, it's not something you'll necessarily want to watch a second time. This 90 very entertaining minutes of "now what's gonna happen"?
So suspend your disbelief a tad, sit back, and be entertained.
