Panic Room may not be David Fincher's best film he did, but the movie does keep you interested from beginning till end.

This is definitely David Fincher's least in depth films, but the level of tension he is able to escalate is still thrilling and pulse-pounding. Jodie Foster also gives a grounded and determined performance, which helps make this film more than just the average action thriller.

A terrific, tense thriller. All of the characters, including the criminals, are not the usual dumb genre types. The situation is believable. It kept me on edge and involved throughout.

If David Fincher directed Home Alone...

If your house was broken into during the middle of the night by 3 men, what would you do? Would you call the cops and then hide under the bed? Would you get your loved ones and try to get out of the house and run for your life? Or maybe you might have the courage to get a gun and fight back? Our main characters have none of these options, so they choose the only one they have: hide in the panic room.

Meg Altman is a recently divorced mother of an 11-year old daughter named Sarah who has just bought a brownstone in New York City. The previous owner of the house was a millionaire recluse, whose background isnít delved into very much. The main thing that intrigues you about the previous owner is their panic room. It is surrounded by concrete steel, has a security system that contains sev...

Are you ever totally safe?

Jodie Foster stars as a divorced mother who, along with her teenage daughter (Kristen Stewart of Twilight), moves into a new house with a state of the art hiding room. Ironically enough, the room comes in handy when a trio of burglars breaks into their new home on the very first night intent on finding a large amount of hidden cash left by the former owner. A simple burglary turns into an exciting cat and mouse game when they learn that the burglars want access to the room. The three criminals who are all stereotypes, the crook with a heart, the unpredictable nut case who joins the team at the last minute and the leader who is actually the weakest scurry about a giant house for an hour and a half while a mom and her daughter watch on video monitors. Foster's daughter has an illness, so we...

"Panic Room" by Yojimbo

When thieves break into a New York home they thought would be empty, the occupying woman and her teenage daughter find refuge in the panic room, unaware that it is the target of the intruders' plan. David Fincher had a lot to live up to when he made this film, which makes it all the more perplexing that he chose such a generic and unimaginative script for his follow up to Fight Club. In fact if anything, the directorial flourishes that worked so well in the context of the off-beat idiosyncracies of that film just look out of place and pointless here and despite the slight Hitchcockian vibe it all seems too overly familiar. Jodie Foster gets to showcase her cleavage, spending the whole running time of the film in her underwear, Kristen Stewart has little to do except look sickly and the vi...
