  • It seemed as though Redford could have escaped just about anytime. Seems like he was ready to give up and/or die. What is the motive(s) for this kidnapping. Dafoe also wanted his life style(boring wife and father in-law) to end just like Redford`s.
  • not bad, I thought the direction was nicely done, and a good performances by Mirren, Dafoe and redford kept the moving interesting
  • More of a character study than a thriller. Great acting.
  • I thought that the movie was very well done. Helen Mirren is an excellent actress, and her acting abilities were showed off very well in this film; the same goes for Redford and Dafoe. I thought it was done well, and even though there was no "supernatural twist" or anything that, that people look for in thrillers, it was a very intelligent, unique, and incredible thiller.
  • I agree with the other viewers-the trailer looked amazing-but where was the thrill in this thriller. It should have been labelled a drama. I enjoyed it for the acting-Redford never disappoints-everyone was very good. Perhaps the movie could have developed the relationship more between Redford and his wife, bring in the "other woman" story more... I kept wanting more.
  • INCREDIBLE!!! AN AMAZING THRILLER. REDFORD AND DAEFOE ARE FANTASTIC!!!
  • I guess I have watched too many thrillers. We kept waiting for a twist. Redford likes touchy, feely....things that challenge our inner thoughts kinda of movies as he gets older. I enjoy a movie that gives me insight into my priorities ....BUT this movie really left me wanting more. Love Redford, and LOVE Defoe...and they did an excellent job of making us feel their different worlds....I still wanted more.
  • I KEPT WAITING FOR THE SUSPENSE, THRILLER PARTS BUT THE MOVIE ENDED BEFORE THEY BEGAN.
  • Unfortunately, it wasn`t as good as the trailer looked
