This review is from: Panic Room [DVD]  (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.
