  • 3 stars Was an a good rental.
  • 5 stars I thought it was great. Sometimes I got confused when it flashed to the past and back to the present. You can feel the frustration in Ryan's character when the police think he's behind the kidnapping. It's true to life acting so sure it seems slow at times. I'm glad they don't get graphic about what they're doing with the kids they kidnap. It shows how easily this could happen to unsuspecting kids.
  • 1 stars Two of these reviews are word for word the same as for a previous canadian film the great deception. I smell a rat here
  • 4 stars Finally a really good movie made in Canada. Time we promote our own films and actors. Loved the ending.
  • 4 stars THOUGHT THE MOVIE WAS EXCELLENT HAD TO PAY ATTENTION TO FOLLOW THE SCRIPT ACTING WAS WELL DONE AND ENJOYED NIAGARA SCENES GREAT ENDING WOULD RECOMMEND THIS FILM AND DONT BE TALKING TO YOUR FRIENDS OR YOU WILL MISS THE PLOT
  • 4 stars I enjoyed this movie a lot. It's a story on a slow boil... but it never feels stretched or overly-long. I was riveted to my seat for the entire film... and I kept wondering (throughout the movie) if I was watching the same film that got panned in Cannes and has earned so many poor or bad reviews.
  • 4 stars Canadian's seem to think that if a film is Canadian it has to be bad. I asked people if they want to go and they said no because the film is Canadian and it must be bad. Where they wrong? Yes! Really wrong! Keep up the good work Canada and I will keep coming. It is the best Canadian film since Snow Walker!
  • 5 stars Excellent film. I am going again with some friends.
  • 5 stars If you have children you will love this movie! They should watch it too.
  • 5 stars Great movie. Like real life, not a typical Hollywood film.
