  1. Smart, stylish and, most important, satisfying.
  2. If there's such a thing as joyless competence, it's exemplified by the grimly sensational kidnap thriller Don't Say a Word.
  3. Almost nothing new to offer -- despite its good actors, flashy visuals and well-textured New York gloss and grit. But there are teasing hints of another, better movie buried inside somewhere.

    The oh-so-convenient convergence of plot threads at the climax make the film feel that much more run-of-the-mill.
  5. A miler trying to run a marathon, a fair middleweight idea trying to deliver heavyweight thrills.
  6. This all-day sucker put me to sleep -- though it's possible I retreated out of self-defense.

    This noirish, sourish thriller left me unmoving as well as unmoved.

The story is just like every other thriller and goes through all the same steps like every other thriller. The movie is rated R but really didn't need to be so you wont be missing anything if you just catch this on TV. Expand

    I was really expecting a thriller having to do with Brittany Murphy being insane, but it just becomes an old man solving being a hero.

Not in the Sean Connery or Harrison Ford kind of way either. Expand
