dumbest unrealistic movie waste of time
Horrible trash..nothing entertaining here.
It was always exciting--never dull. My interest was above average but no Oscar nominations. It was a bit of a fantasy that one woman could do all that Halle Berry did, but I always like happy Hollywood endings.
Halle Berry still going strong
Reaches a point of no return as far as believability. Too bad.
this movie was a waste of time. Halley has played better parts in other movies. I was very disappointed as I enjoy her acting but this one just didn't do it at all for me. There were parts that were predictable and at time boring.. Most of the movie was her driving along the road, no police investigation which is usually what happens on a kidnapping until the very end. I would recommend this movie to anyone. Save your money for another one..
Unrealistic, not a good movie.
This movie was awesome. I'm not really a Halle Berry fan but she played an excellent role. As a Mother I would of done the same as she did to get my child back.
Very tense thriller. Great pacing and direction. Kept me at the edge of my seat throughout.
94 mins of my time I will never get back! I like Halle Berry but this movie was awful!
Hale Berry was awesome. She is not by any means my favorite actress, and by far I expected something very different. The drama in this work was riveting, the script was good, but Berry's acting made the fictional tale real for me, keeping on the edge of my seat the entire time, sharing the character's emotions, fears, and despair. The amount of action , car chases, and suspense was very good. The only and minor criticism is the slightly predictable ending. I have highly recommended this movie to everyone. Must see!
I liked this movie better when it was called "The Call" - it's very similar (but that one was better) and both star Halle Berry (who should get acting lessons).
If I could I would have said ZERO stars or even less than ZERO!! This movie was such a waste of our time and money! The trailer enticed me to watch it but what a mistake! It is an extremely poor film. Seriously, one might think that this was done for an elementary or middle school project! (the script could have been written by a gr 4-6 child and it appeared that a very young teen with no experience filmed it!) I mean how many minutes can you watch a van driving on a hwy with Halle saying 'o god' a billion times....oh! and then lets pan over to the rotating tire for several minutes, and! how about the view of the dotted line (now that was amazing - NOT!), and it doesn't end, then on to the mustang, back to the tire, then Halle again with same script, then a wide angle shot........on and on... 40'ish minutes I'd guess....half the movie! Seriously! It was HORRIBLE!
Predictable and stupid. Walked out after 30 mins.
Don't waste your money. I was so looking forward to seeing this movie. It was not at all the story line shown in the commercials. The first 35-40 minutes is about the mother driving her van like a maniac on the highway chasing the kidnappers. It is not realistic at all and only gets interesting in the final 10 minutes and then just ends. Very disappointed.
Terror, violence and more of the same. Terrible story, going nowhere. Poor timing for the white southern's.
No academy award winner ,but keeps you entertained . Has a few ,make you jump scenes .Not too bad of a film .
Kind of far fetched, she was called a hero at the end, but there were countless car wrecks, multiple people injured, and how many killed. I enjoyed the movie but thought it would have been much better.
Edge of your seat!
Halle Berry still does a great job of acting.
Someone should have kidnapped Halle Berry before they finished this predictable movie......kinda of a money grab, would be ok on tv.
Garbage....Garbage....5 Star's really? Who paid you?
Rotten, rotten, rotten, mindless and rotten. The same movie over and over again and Halle Berry adds nothing to this tired, old scenario.
Very quick moving, a lot of suspence and a mom that would go to the end of the earth for her child.
It was predictable and un realistic. Terrible acting with Halle.
Halle Berry was excellent in this movie. You were kept on the edge of your seat.
This movie has so much suspense, I loved it. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
A good movie a little predictable but a good thriller
To all the 5 star reviews and comments like "a superior thriller", get your heads checked and stop wasting people's time. This is not a 5 star movie and you know it, so either you're blind or you work on the promotion team trying to save this bomb. But for the free passes we got to see this, we would've never and actually walked out after about 45 minutes. When the audience started laughing, we knew it was time to go.
A superior thriller.
This movie had been done 150 times already and HB lives up to her Razzie caliber here. She really is one bad actress. No wonder she lands only lame roles like this one. Weak story, terrible editing too.
It really too bad the movie is not Close captioned for deaf people that goes to movie theatre. Big disappointment for me & my sister tonight. All movies should be closed captioned!!
HALLE BERRY BEST SINCE DARK TIDE
I love anything Halle Berry is in. (TWO THUMBS UP!!!!!!)
Berry did a wonderful job in this high speed high action film.
We all love Halle and her grim determination was a force to be reckoned with. Thats the good part. Her little boy played a very difficult part and was very brave. Parents cannot leave kids alone for any length of time, not even to answer a phone call. Lot of action, and danger, but all the bad guys were slovenly obese hicks from the bayou. If Halle had stopped for the cop on the bike, it would've ended right there, he wouldve gotten them.
I just love Halle Berry in this movie
5 stars.....movie flew by and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.....It always amazes me when people say, it's not believable.....PEOPLE .... it's a movie to entertain you geez.......and entertain it did!!
HALLE BERRY DOES IT AGAIN
