Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

[Minor spoilers.] When your level of creativity is to cast Sean Bean not as the villain, but as the creepy guy you think is the villain but turns out not to be, your well has run dry. This movie stitches together inspirations from recent movies like Panic Room, Air Force One, and The Forgotten, all of them mediocre but still better than this, and it doesn't come anywhere close to the master inspiration The Lady Vanishes. The movie gets a little juice out of the high concept, and Jodie Foster would be good just ordering pizza, but there's not much to recommend here.
