Still worth a watch. The whole premise of the movie, that Kim Basinger, as a kidnapped mom, manages to put together a broken phone and contact someone who is willing to risk all to help her is unbelievable. Yes. But so are so many 'Thrillers' of this genre. It's one of those 'only in America' movies.
The movie starts slowly, but hang in there, it gets better. By the end it I felt I had got my moneys worth. It is exciting, suspensful with the usual shoot outs, car chases and an unlikely hero who comes good.
I thought the best performance was put in by William Macey as the only straight cop on the force.
