"Panic Room" is not just a suspenseful home invasion thriller with stylized direction, but one that's smart enough to remember to make you care about its characters.

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

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 isn’t delved into very much. The main thing that intrigues you about the previous owner is their panic room.

Foster's daughter has an illness, so …

"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 …
