3.0 out of 5 stars A Panic To Reach The Forth Star..... Just Fails!!, 30 July 2006
This review is from: Panic Room [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
I watched this last night as I was suffering from serious boredom and any DVD from my collection would of done, since I hadn't seen this for a while, I decided to give it a go!!

I was more impressed this time round than I was the last, very pleasently surprised infact.

The film has more than capable talent at its disposal and each character holds up well; I found it particularly nice to find that one of the thieves was "Forest Whitaker", he is a very decent actor and one who usually doesn't get as much screen time as he deserves, but is part of the glue that holds this film together so well!!

What is very striking is the pace of the film, you would expect a movie where a couple of people are stuck in a room to move at an OAP's pace, however, things are always going on and the film chucks up believable folds in the plot, rather than just nonsense!!

This film really does make the most out of the plot, it seems hard to think how they got this far with such a restrictive idea, but the movie really gets away with it and it never feels forced or boring, some scenes are genuinely tense and does mostly keep you on your toes. I Can't really think of any "In your face negatives", so let's just leave it at that. While a 4Star rating is probably down to your personal opinion, to me, it is certainly worth 3stars and probably another half a star too!!

I don't really know what else to say, while it is never classic material or a film that will go down in history, it is a great movie to sit down and watch on a rainy day and not one that will leave a sour taste in your mouth!!

Take Care and don't relocate to a big house with a Panic Room!!
