This contains spoilers.
This was one of the worst movies we have borrowed from the library. The van must have been a descendant of “Christine, it kept repairing itself during the car chase. They also missed their chance to have a Charger chasing a Mustang as a Bullitt in reverse.
Airbags deploy and the car keeps going, one minute they cars are in traffic and the next there is no one around, bad guy with shotgun doesn’t just shoot through the window. Karla has the bad dude out of the car and away from her son but doesn’t just run him over.
We did a fast forward through the very long chase scene, it seemed padded just to make the movie fit the runtime. I guess it could make a good midnight movie where you could throw popcorn at the screen.

Worst movie we saw this year... could not finish it - it was sooo bad - unrealistic, unbelievable, far-fetched... just the worst...

Halle Berry's best work yet. The most suspenseful movie I've seen in years--tension starts and 10 minutes in and never stops. A movie every mother should watch. Fans of car chases and crashes will love it, too. (The story was probably written for a male lead, but it was brilliant to have it be a mother instead of a father be the hero.)

Probably the worst movie that Halle has been in. One of very few movies that I did not watch until the end. Much of the action was just so far-fetched and unbelievable.

Non stop action. Story line very far fetched. Entertaining overall and will not disappoint once you remember that it is, after all, a movie.

All I can say is don't mess with a mother chasing bad guys who kidnaps her son. Halle Berry is a good actress but the movie wasn't.

This manages to be half way decent because Halle Berry has no superpowers or magical weapons; she's just an average mom who will do anything to get her kid back. Its not spectacular but it is fairly realistic.
