Solid Thriller

  • May 13, 2002
Rating:

Pros: Jodie Foster!

Cons: None

The Bottom Line: Solid film - good acting - a thriller - a good all around movie.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

I never miss a Jodie Foster film and though some aren't my favorites, this one was a winner.

I paid full price for this and got my usual Jodie fix, strong confident woman taking care of business. She brings to the role her usual qualities and adds a lot to this film.

The best thing about this movie is how it's filmed. A lot of tricky camera angles go a long way in the suspense of this one.

Bottom line, Jodie and her daughter outwit some burgulars who are as stupid as they are brazen. Is the plot completely believable - not really but I'm quick to forgive.
The daughter character is very good as well, a solid performance from a newcomer that I am sure we will be seeing more of.


I was on the edge of my seat a few times, and the ending had a good "all is right with the world" feeling where good conquers evil. Who could ask for more?

A thumbs up!
