*PANIC ROOM (superbit-single disc)*
I thought Panic Room was going to be boring and not worth the time. On the contrary, it was quite entertaining. I couldn't imagine how they would fill an hour and a half of being stuck in a panic room shelter hiding from the bad guys. Turns out the movie is about 20 minutes longer than that. There are a few twists and turns that keep it very interesting. The hook is a clever story line of a criminal and his struggle to do right when he's doing wrong. Also, the strength of a parent when their childs life is in danger. It leaves you with a good feeling and I can appreciate that.
I absolutely loved the camera work. Some of the neatest camera pans you'll ever see in a movie are in Panic Room. A little too much cursing but, it's almost expected with thud criminals to speak at that level, it's understandable but there's a lot of it.
Very well done. Better than I expected.

Drama at it's finest. You'll be close to a heart attack by the end of the movie. A very smart drama. It's very well written. A somewhat original idea for a movie.

Format: DVD
A divorced woman (Jodie Foster) and her daughter (Kristen Stewart) lock themselves into the steel-reinforced "panic room" of their spacious New York brownstone to escape a trio of home invaders (Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, and Dwight Yoakum). This sets the stage for a stalemate that neither side can afford. The object of the intruders' search is hidden within the panic room itself, and daughter has a medical condition which makes escape imperative. This film is a fine cat-and-mouse thriller that doesn't cheat or insult the intelligence of the viewer. Recommended.

After the very powerful Fight Club (1999), much was anticipated from Fincher's next... the concept was interesting, very Hitchcockian in style and narration, but it turned out a bit of a letdown. Not as bad as Alien3, though. Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart (yes, that's her) pull out nice performances out of a very A to B plot with predictable development, but it was an entertaining one to be sure. Turning the "safest house" into the "most dangerous house" was no easy feat, and the camera work is quite a visual sequel to Fight Club.

This being a three-disc edition, LOADS will be revealed. For instance: did you know that Nicole Kidman was supposed to have played Jodie Foster's part? A day or so was even shot, but she broke her foot during Moulin Rouge (or some other project) and had to be replaced. There are tons more details in this perfect edition loaded to the brim with features.

...I wanted something a little more provocative seeing that Director Finscher just came off the triumph of Fight Club to do this. This is a stylish, moody movie in its own right. And the way the two ladies holed up in the panic room hold off the bad guys will keep you entertained for the duration of the movie. Whittaker comes off ultimately as a benevolent bad guy. Jodie is believable as a single mom trying to protect her offspring ala Little Man Tate. But alas, good acting and a hot director could not save this thriller from the throes of predictability. Movies like this one will occupy your time and attention and you will enjoy it, but don't ask for more than that...

I agree it doesn't hold up with Seven and Fight Club but it's way better then The Game and Aliens 3, not that I dont like them movies but this one is good old time. Foster gives another fine tuned performance, Kristen Stewart as her daughter is also excellent. The 3 robbers, Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto and Dwight Yoakam are all sinister and evil in their own little ways though Yoakam is more violent and crazy. Leto holds up his end until he is shot in the eye by Yoakam and Whitaker does great work as well. Predictible yet fun it starts right off and then ends in a violent finale. I guess people have bad tastes. Dialouge isnt that bad, people.

Panic Room is one of those films that start off with great promise because of its title ( like 1992's The Hand that Rocks the Cradle ). Also, like The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, Panic Room's promise disappears within minutes and the film turns into a mindless mess. Jodie Foster who's known for masculine, tougher, butch-like roles plays a single mother who's normal boring world goes from ordinary to thrilling in one night. I thought this would be different but once again Hollywood pees on its own leg. We get a bratty, foul-mouthed child ( whose mother allows her to curse right in front of her ), a disillusioned mother and a couple of criminals in the dullest looking house to ever be in a film. The setting is dark and gloomy making the film as boring as watching a corpse rot. Don't be fooled. The title is wonderful but nothing hooks you in. This is nothing different from a million other films where a woman was trapped in a house with criminals. It's been done for centuries and this is the worst version of anything similar.
The supporting actors Jared Leto and Forrest Whitaker out-acted Foster easily though I felt Forrest was wasted. Bottom line, this movie isn't even interesting enough to review. I just felt I should save someone the time and trouble of seeing this crap. It's one of the most boring, draggy films you'll ever experience. It's like being in a time capsule for fifty years. NOTHING seems to ever move and by the time it does...you'll be asleep or have stopped watching. Why BUY this when it's on Cinemax every day and night? Save your money and watch it on cable. Being drunk or terribly bored may enable you to sit through this, which I consider one of the most horrible films of 2001, 2002 or whatever.
The biggest question isn't if Foster and the girl will get out alive. It's why the heck this dumb film was made in the first place.
