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.

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.

Format: DVD
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.

Many people asked when the first buzz about "Panic Room" came out, "how good can a movie be about two people stuck in a room?" well, those people didn't know the magic of director David Fincher and the true acting ability of Jodie Foster. "Panic Room" is the best thriller I've seen since "The Sixth Sense".
Meg(Foster), divorced from her husband, and her daughter Sarah(Kristen Stewart) Altman move into a spacious three floor on the West side of New York. The house is too good to be true - huge rooms, an elevator, and a room that is hidden, a panic room. A panic room has a huge steel door which is inpenetrable and is sensored, an entire security camera system to view, seperate phone line, and steel and concrete surrounding the entire area. This looks like a dream come true for the Altman'S - until the first night.
Three robbers enter: The family man Burnham(Forest Whitaker), the boss and talker Junior(Jared Leto)and the stranger Raoul(Dwight Yoakam). they come looking for one thing: money. Money that the previous owner had kept away. Junior says that they're each going to get a million dollars. The one thing the trio does not expect is that there are actual people in the house. Here's where the suspense begins. Howard Shore's score kicks into full effect as Foster and Stewart run to the Panic Room.
This movie is too good to reveal what happens, but it all revolves arrounf the money being in the Panic Room itself. With such plot twists as Sarah (Stewart) being diabetic and Meg (Foster) being claustrophobical, along with many others, this one kept me on the edge of my seat. David Fincher is a great director, and Jodie Foster completely pulls out the role as mother/fighter/schemer to a T, and does us all in. A must see and a definate buy on DVD!
