Product Description

Product Description

When Meg Altman (Jodie Foster) and her teenage daughter Sarah (Kristen Stewart) move into a luxury Manhattan townhouse they have no plans to use the ultra-secure 'panic room' installed by the previous occupant. But on their first night in their new home, three burglars break-in with plans to steal the money they believe is still concealed in the panic room's safe. Meg and Sarah then quickly take refuge in the secure chamber, locking themselves in and watching the burglars through the surveillance system; what follows is a tense cat-and-mouse game, as the criminals attempt to unlock the room and the mother and daughter try to signal for help. Directed by David Fincher ('Seven', 'Fight Club').

5.0 out of 5 stars Claustrophobic Terror 30 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Panic Room is a tightly-packed, suspense filled and disturbing film from David Fincher, the director of Alien 3 and the excellent Se7en. The film starts off with Meg Altman, a divorcee (Jodie Foster), and her diabetic daughter (Kristen Stewart) moving into a new house located on Manhatten's upper-east end. Meg is initially thrilled to buy the house, that is until she discovers the Panic Room, a huge, articulated room that has been designed specifically to keep out intruders. Meg's attitude toward the house changes as soon as she sees this chamber. But her daughter persuades to her continue her original idea.
After a night of celebrating, the Altman pair settle into their brand new house for their first night's sleep. No sooner have they settled in for the night, that three intruders break into the property, they are Junior (Jared Leto), Burnham (Forrest Whitaker) and the psycho Raoul (Dwight Yoakam). Meg notices them on one of the many cameras located throughout the house. She runs, terrified to Sarah's room, wakes her up and the pair then run around the house, searching for a place to hide. They run for the stairs, but Raoul blocks their path.
They manage to make it to the lift just before they are captured. Meg and Sarah are terified at this point, then Sarah remembers the Panic Room, it would be the perfect place. Meg pushes the lift for the room's floor, they run for the room just as Junior comes bolting up the stairs after them. Meg and Sarah shoot through the door, just as Junior is making it to the door. Sarah pushes the button, and the door closes, locking them safely inside the Panic Room, or so they think....... what the three intruders want is inside the Panic Room.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Fingernail remover! 28 Nov 2002
How can a movie about two people trapped in a high tech little hovel possibly make a good movie? i hear you cynics cry. Those of you who ask this have clearly not actually seen Panic Room because it is actually one of the best thrillers i have seen for a long time.
The plot concerns a mother and daughter who are placed in a deadly game of cat and mouse when three intruders break into their new home. They decide to hole up in the panic room of the title, an impregnable fortress which unfortunately, is what the three criminals have their sights set on. What follows is two hours of seriously tense thriller as the three criminals try to get the pair out of the panic room, whilst at the same time, it's occupants are trying to find some way to rid themselves of their uninvited guests.
The casting on this film is quite superb and the characters themselves add to the tension. Mother Meg Altman is ably played by Jodie Foster who plays her character very convincingly with a real sense of desperation and fear. Her daughter (played by Kristen Stewart) throws another element into the mix with her illness making her a ticking time bomb trapped with Foster. The three criminals are also superb and their different personalities work excellently together. Burnham (Forrest Whitaker) is the security expert trying to break into his own work and the brains at work to bring the whole thing top a safe conclusion. His efforts are hampered by the mysterious Raoul, who doesn't seem to care and looks constantly intimidating. The criminals are rounded off by Junior (Jared Leto), the kid with visions on a get-rich-quick scheme that quickly turns into something that he finds difficult to handle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Panic Room 28 April 2004
By J. E. Bamber VINE VOICE
With this film i must say that my expectations were probably unfair, theywere based upon the huge talents of Jodie Foster and the fantasticdirector of Seven. I thought that this was going to be an edge of yourseat thriller, with cleverly placed clues and dramatic fight scenes and toa certain extent Panic Room is, but only to a certain extent. It's not gotthe fizz that it could of had, the tension is certainly high and the fightscenes are increasingly elaborate, but the action seems to be just thrownin for good measure and the dramatic fight scenes are occasionallyunnesesary, Panic Room turns out to be less than a fight to the death andmore of a over exagerated escape movie. But while Panic Room didnt meet myexpectations on those action levels, it did blow me away, with the rawemotion of being scared, seeing your loved ones being hurt, being trapedand not knowing what to do. Jodie Foster does put in as ever a brilliantperformance.

5.0 out of 5 stars panic room 3 disc edition 11 April 2005
By A Customer
This film does not disappoint, the action starts not long after the film has started and keeps you glued to the screen all the way through.
i wont tell you what the stories about as you can read any of the other reviews to find that out.
There are loads of bonus features in this 3 disc special edition and 3 easter eggs and 2 hidden featurettes (these arent easter eggs )
the first easter egg is on disc 2. if you go to "pre-production" and then at the next menu click "prep". after this just put the cursor over "safe cracking school" (dont click on it) press the right button and you will find a featurette called "real safe rooms"
the second is again on the 2nd disc. click onh "production" in the menu and put the cursor over "main menu" then press right. now press enter to watch "breaking the mirror"
the third easter egg is on the last disc. click on visual effects, then go to the fourth page of featurettes and put the cursor on "CGI propane tank".
the two hidden featurettes are hidden inside a featurette. both on the 3rd disc - ones on 3rd page of visual effects - press enter on "the flashlight" a couple of minutes into it, it will say at the bottom of the screen press enter and you will see "anamorphic lens flares"
the second - 3rd page of visual effects - select "x-ray floor" and a couple of minutes into it press enter and you will see a shot from the film "the lodger".
i think the acting in this film is brilliant and creates suspense, and this is what you call a special edition not like the ring - collectors edition. most normal editions are better than that!!
