Justin theroux plays 'Daniel' who is the son of a wealthy art dealer.The film begins with Daniel & his girlfriend Suzanne(Alyssa milano) on their way to his familys house for thanksgiving.Daniel has always been considered as the 'black sheep' of the family so when they arrive there is awkwardness & tension around the dinner table as Suzanne learns about his familys history.When dinner is over they retreat to the basement,minutes later they hear gunshots from upstairs & the suspense begins!
Good action thriller,if a little predictable(well it was for me!)with the plotlines 'suprise' twist later on in the movie,still very enjoyable but as with most movies with a 'twist' its not really a film that you could watch more than once as you will know what to expect.

Before she found fame in Charmed Alyssa Milano starred in this 1997 thriller alongside Hip Hop legend Ice T and Justin Theroux, in this movie Milano plays Susanne, she and her boyfriend (Daniel) played by Justin Theroux go to his family home (a big mansion in the middle of nowhere) known as "their own little Utopia" to introduce them to his girlfriend for the first time, when they arrive they already sit at the dinner table and his family show they are quite a dysfunctional bunch.
Daniel's father tries to coax him to join the family business, which he refuses then Daniel and Susanne go to the basement to have quality time together, later on Ice T and his two buddies (including Tiny Lister) walk in and kill everyone upstairs and start to load their van with expensive paintings, Daniel and Susanne then try to find a way out without getting killed but the plot is not as straight forward as it sounds.
As for the acting Ice T plays his character well, Alyssa Milano is convincing as a scared would be victim but Justin Theroux steals the movie with his performance, if you are a Alyssa Milano (Charmed) fan, an Ice T fan and you like good thrillers with a good twist then I highly recommend this.

This is a story of a wealthy family that must obey the father and do as told, Now with one brother dead and the other not wanting to join the family business is threatened to be tossed out of the family fortune, now retreating to his safe heaven in the basement with his girlfriend and to make a choice. Not long after there are loud shots heard from above and thieves are killing all they find so there are no witnesses. This cat and mouse game is on when the crooks find the room that they are in. Fearing for their lives they start taking it to the next level and leave dead bodies all over the place that it looks like a battlefield, some one didn't know that he is a professional hit man, I rated this an A grade plus for the twist and turns that happen all the way through with great ideas that keeps this show going. Action right on and no time to blink so get yourself a move on, pick up the popcorn on your way back. Settle in get comfortable put your feet up for a fabulous night of entertainment that is coming your way. Are you ready to proceed with the movie don't relax to much you haven't got time for that.
