When their daughter is abducted and taken for ransom by a gang of serial kidnappers, a young doctor and his wife find themselves held hostage while a 24-hour plan to extort their money is set into motion. Now, with time running out and the health of their asthmatic daughter at serious risk, they find themselves in a life-and-death race against the clock as the "perfect crime" begins spiraling towards an unthinkable, terrifying and deadly conclusion.
Originally, the script called for the character of Abby to be diabetic, but Panic Room (2002) also featured a little girl with juvenile diabetes, and as it was to be released first, so Abby was changed to an asthmatic instead. See more »
When Marvin and Abby are sitting in the cabin watching "The Secret of NIMH", the audio is from a separate part of the film than the visual that is shown. See more »
Love the beginning. The premise of the movie is set up beautifully, tightly, but a garbled ending with too many plot lines begun in the last third of the movie dooms the project. It dissipates interest when a director arbitrarily introduces motives that had not been foreshadowed. Competent actors in what is eventually a lifeless vehicle, despite the chase, collisions, smoke and noise.
