    The acting is good buy everybody involved but overall the movie is is just average. 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.

    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.

  1. If there's such a thing as joyless competence, it's exemplified by the grimly sensational kidnap thriller Don't Say a Word.

    Generates tension from the get-go, albeit of an increasingly unpleasant variety, on its way to a disappointingly generic climax.

    Don't say you weren't warned. There are instant clues that this ill-timed Michael Douglas vehicle is a dually unfortunate viewing experience.
