I quite liked this film. But only 'quite'! I tried to work out what was missing from the film to make it a top notch thriller. In fact, apart from the leading lady, who plays her part very well, the remainder of the cast are either half-hearted (Brosnan) or OTT (Butler).
The film does grip in parts but the pressure on the family of the kidnapped daughter is not really maintained and I think it's this which lets down the 'thriller' aspect. (I also dislike intensely poor editing - even a Range Rover, after hitting a wall would surely have a little damage and why weren't the air-bags released?) Picky? Probably but these days, we expect accuracy from our films.
I think Brosnan should have kept on with Bond (though now we have a new one, I wouldn't change back!) and Butler should stick to being superficial and smarmy.
If anyone wants my copy, let me know. It's not a film you can watch more than once but, in my view, you wouldn't want to, anyway. I gave it three stars because I'd just watched 'Next' and it's way better than that film!
