General Gist: A girl who reports she was kidnapped and escaped, claims her sister is now kidnapped and sets out on a quest to find and save her sister.
I am always a little hesitant to go to movies that I think may be "scary". I have always been a wimp, and I can't sleep at night or I have nightmares. I take that as a compliment to my imagination. The upside to this movie, there were no ghosts. Ghosts are the things that freak me out the most. I figured since there weren't ghosts I could handle it.
Deb's Rate: Rent it (leaning towards a matinee)
The previews for this movie made it seem like a definite thriller. The kind that would keep you on the edge of your seat. Well, it did a little but not a lot. I totally agree with Deb that this movie was just plain odd. I felt like the movie jumped right in to the action without a lot of setting up of who was who. That wouldn't necessarily have been a bad thing but the "action" wasn't really there. It was like the whole time you were waiting for it to really get going. And then when it finally reached a peak it just sort of ended. Very anticlimactic for sure. And there were a lot of random characters that you thought would be important but then weren't. Or could have been eliminated from the movie altogether and wouldn't have made an ounce of difference.
The acting was okay and Amanda Seyfried was decent but overall this movie just lacked that extra umph.
