Soon, Max will wish that he had never kidnapped David, much less even heard of him.Written by
After chasing off the wolf by firing his gun, Vince (Joel Edgerton) says, "God bless the fifth amendment." The United States Constitution's fifth amendment protects against self-incrimination and requires due process be afforded.

It is one of those movies that look ordinary and start slow but catch up fast. I admit some of its plots look predictable but that is also the whole point. Human beings are all the same and all have similar weaknesses. I was particularly impressed with Josh Holloway's performance. He has talent and provided the right opportunity he can deliver. I can't say the same about Sarah Wayne Callies, she appeared to be struggling. It seemed a little light on horror for its story but otherwise gives a chilling experience nevertheless. And the ending was also good.
Overall a movie with character.
