First, I need to address the ridiculous and flat out wrong points each of the previous reviewers wrote. In summery, the first reviewer admits to walking out of the film after 10 minutes! That said, how do you know what happened the other 86 minutes of the film. Point 1, the mother does not have 1% on her phone....she loses the phone while chasing after her son! 2. It's common (in the U.S.) to have a White couple walking with a black child. There was no dragging until they enter the car as the mother spots them! What 3rd world country are you from? 3. It's never stated the ex husband is a lawyer. It's made clear he has an MD as a partner but never states what he does for a living. He has a lawyer, not is a lawyer....don't review a film unless you watch all of it. You are doing this community a disservice.To the second reviewer, at least He/She watched the whole film despite their opinion, which they are entitled to. First, two time nominated and one time winner of the Academy Awards for Leading Actress roll Halle Berry is, in fact, a very good actress. To answer your question....she has not taken roles in a four or so year period as she became a Mother and is dedicated to raising her child as a toddler as most Mothers do until the child is old enough and the parent can go back to work. Additionally, if you know anything about cars, an early model (83-89) Mustang GT is a VERY FAST car. It was the last of the 5.0 Litre Mustangs until recently and was one of the lightest models since 1965. Hence, ANY minivan is NO match for that GT. Also, to suggest there were plenty of times to get in front of the car is plain stupid! Would you do that if the passenger is holding a knife to your child's neck? The rest of your negative diatribe is not worth addressing. I won't bother to debunk your other inaccurate perspectives on the movie as I would like to give my own opinion.Now, I don't say this is a great film. Not even a very good film, I think it was entertaining, as it was what it was. A fast paced thriller about a mothers love for her child and the ends she would go to to save him at any cost. I think Halle Beery actually does a good job with a rather simple premise. Her acting is fine and above par but the story line is quite contrite. Otherwise, it evokes emotion throughout after a rather slow beginning, but, isn't that what a decent to good film is supposed to do? Get you emotionally invested in the story line or plot? No matter how simple or straight forward? I will say, growing up in NYC, NY and having a home in Florida as well, the biggest part of the BS of the story is that almost nowhere in the United Stated (except Montana, Utah, North and South Dakota and perhaps The deserts of Nevada) can someone race through major highways and roads at high speeds leaving a swath of destruction behind you, chasing a car with no license plates will there be no police on you within minutes. Even if she hadn't been following the kidnappers at excessive speeds, someone would have noticed the chase of a car with NO plates! Simply would NEVER HAPPEN. Barring that pretty big oversight, I enjoyed the film and was entertained for 85% of it.If your a fan of fast paced thrillers with a simple premise and some terrific stunt work, you will enjoy this film. If your looking for a Hitchcock type thriller, this film is not for you.
In the US, a child goes missing every 40 seconds. You never think it will happen to you. Until it does. Alone and scared, Karla Dyson (Halle Berry) is unwilling to leave the fate of her son's life in someone else's hands. When she catches a glimpse of the abductors speeding away, she decides to fight back. In a heart pounding race against time, Karla begins a high speed pursuit and will stop at nothing to save her son's life.
