This film is tedious and boringBy jules56 (6 reviews) from Richmond , 01 Apr 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]I wish I hadn't rented ths movie. I did because of the actors but they should disown themselves from it. This is probably the worst film I have seen in a long time. There is no story. The whle film consists of the baddies not quite shooting their hostages. And that's it! Every aspect of this film is dumb and stupid and Cage and Kidman should never have made it.

Nicolas what have you done?By KIDNA (26 reviews) from SOMERSET , 26 Sep 2012Sorry to say this was disappointing! I love Nicolas Cage and was so excited to hear he had done another film. I couldn't wait to watch it, I nearly brought it about five times, thankfully I didn't.
Yes the actors are good, yes there is action and guns but there are no thrills and no storyline. Its been done before. This is the 1st Nicolas Cage film I got bored in. YES even your face on the screen did not help!!
Make sure your doors are locked before watching.By The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 22 Sep 2012Thought the other reviews are a bit harsh. It is a reasonable home invasion thriller with a good cast. Yes it has all been done before and Panic Room for example was much better. But this film just does what it says on the tin. It is not deep and the characters are not developed but is an easy watch routine thriller with Nicholas Cage playing Nicholas Cage. It is watchable but not a memorable film.
Y oh Y did two such high profile stars say yes to thisBy Richard123 (3 reviews) , 18 Sep 2012Very predictable - very annoying. The only thing that stop me reaching for the eject button was the thought it must get better soon - It didn't.
This film is so exciting and chilling!By psychictasha (42 reviews) from Bexhill-on-Sea , 12 Sep 2012This film is so exciting and chilling! A film that has been done well and has lots of twists. My husband and I will see this again in the future. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and you really do feel for the characters.
Call the CopsBy manonfireuk (407 reviews) from Liverpool , 11 Sep 2012Home invasion movies such as The Strangers and Funny Games can be pretty scary and disturbing, however, put a potentially tense plot into the hands of Joel Schumacher and all tension will disappear, the wrong actors will have been cast in the lead roles and the whole film will be ridiculous. It also makes me sad that Ben Mendlesohn who was excellent in Animal Kingdom is completely wasted here.
