Storyline

When the eight-year-old son, David, of a wealthy New England socialite is abducted, his kidnapper Max Harper and his seedy associates assume it will be a routine kidnapping in exchange for a large ransom. Unknown to the kidnappers, the shy and reserved David actually has a hidden agenda of his own, and a mysterious way of tapping into the minds of others. Soon, Max will wish that he had never kidnapped David, much less even heard of him. Written by Icedberry

Goofs

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. He probably meant the second amendment, which protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. See more »

A Beautiful Movie
3 April 2010 | by gertru007See all my reviews

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.
