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 know that later on her illness is going to play a factor. However David Fincher knows how to make effective use of shadows, darkness, dim lights, and ultra cool camera shots so this is what makes Panic Room fun watch.
