Product Description

Product Description

Trapped in their New York brownstone's panic room, a hidden chamber built as a sanctuary in the event of break-ins, newly divorced Meg Altman (Jodie Foster) and her daughter, Sarah (Kristen Stewart),play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with three intruders--Burnham (Forest Whitaker), Raoul (Dwight Yoakam) and Junior (Jared Leto) -- during a brutal home invasion. But the room itself is the focal point because what the intruders really want is inside it.


Consacré enfant prodige du cinéma américain depuis Seven et, surtout, Fight Club, David Fincher savait sa Chambre forte (Panic Room en version originale), censée explorer les névroses paranoïaques des bourgeois américains, plus qu’attendue.

Meg, une femme récemment divorcée, et Sarah, son adolescente rebelle, cherchent une nouvelle demeure dans les quartiers huppés de New York. Elles arrêtent leur choix sur un appartement dernier cri en matière de sécurité, muni d’une chambre forte. Mais à quoi faut-il s’attendre quand le butin d’un trio de cambrioleurs se trouve précisément dans cette chambre ?

Avec ce thriller tendu, Fincher signe un film visuellement très original, en forme de poursuite où Forest Whitaker, en brute au cœur tendre, sera le chat et Jodie Foster, parfaite en femme forte un peu perdue, la souris. Chaque scène, et ce, dès l’inventif générique, cache une nouvelle trouvaille de ce formaliste génial qu’est Fincher. Une mise en scène précise et soignée – notamment au début, lorsque la grande maison silencieuse aux murs blancs est, à elle seule, source d’angoisse – un bon rythme (alourdi uniquement par une dernière scène inutile), ainsi que des réparties dynamiques font de cette Panic Room un thriller tout à fait crédible au suspense particulièrement prenant. --Helen Faradji --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

*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.

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.

Using many of the same techniques he found so successful in his earlier films, David Fincher try's to weave another exciting thriller. But this time whats missing is a truly great story and script. We have seen this basic story before," Home Alone", to "Die Hard". Two very different films, but both with the same premise. Our protagonist is trapped in a building with loved ones at stake by a group of theives.
In Die Hard all the bases are covered in a fairly believable context. With Home Alone we are talking about a comedy, and kid so we have alot of room to play with what could be believable. But here we have a very intelligent adult in Jody Foster a reasonably intelligent teenage girl, and three bad guys. Two of whom aint the brightest bulbs in the box, and one who's got brains, and a decent heart. We know almost from the get go that(as the decent bad guy says) "Everythings going to be alright."
Kinda kills the suspense.
The acting is good from Forest Whitiker, Jared Leto, and Dwight Yoakem. The teenage daughter of Fosters character played by Kristen Stewart is dead on. And as always Jody Foster is terrific.(Baring very ample and distracting cleavage this goround)
The camara moves we've come to expect from Fincher are all here on constant display, and the CGI inhancing is flawless.
The story and script are the problem. In a thriller our protaganist must do the same things we would reasonably do in order to extricate themselves from the situation. That is until the antagonists leave them no option except the extreme. Never happens here.
This DVD is excellent in quality, and quantity. Three discs woth of "how we did it" info. You will see that this was a big, expensive project. Just a shame they didnt spend more money on the script.

Panic Room is a decent, if at times predictible thriller from director David (Seven, Fight Club) Fincher. Meg Altman (Jodie Foster) and her daughter Sarah, (Kristen Stewart) are looking for the perfect New York City Brownstone to call home. Eventually, they decide take a place recently owned by a prominent New Yorker, it comes complete with what's known as a "panic room". As Meg, and Sarah settle in, three invaders break into their home. In order to protect themselves, the mother and daughter retreat to the highly fortified panic room. However, the very room that acts as a safe place, is the same room that the intruders want to break into. Burnham (Forest Whitaker), Raoul (Dwight Yoakam), and Junior (Jared Leto) are sure the room holds what it is their looking for.
Fincher, a unique filmmaker, manages to make this limited setpiece film interesting to watch. He allows for unique perspectives and angles on every day items This tactic is very well employed and never overused. The acting from Foster and Stewart holds the film together, and even though the script is sometimes predictible, I was still drawn into the Altnan's situation. As for the 3 intruders, I thought the "banter" and humor was a bit overdone, between the trio for this film.
I remember being very disappointed over the fact that the Superbit DVD of the film lacked any real extras. The studio must have known that the film deserved better treatment. Like the special editions of other films directed by David Fincher, Alien 3, Seven and Fight Club, Panic Room follows suit--and maybe even then some.
Disc One features three audio commentary tracks. The first has director Fincher going solo. Fortunately, he so well spoken and honest, he doesn't need to have any speaking partner this time out.

MOVIE: David Koepp (Who wrote the screenplay) must have been seeking a challenge or something when he decided to cook this morsel up. How do you make a movie compelling when the only setting is a manhattan town home, when the main characters are stuck in one room throughout the majority of the movie, and when there are no major stunt sequences or gunfights? How do you? You get David Fincher to direct, that's how! The movie has the simplest premise yet the movie is tense and entertaining. I remember seeing the trailer for the first time and I kind of though "what a stupid idea that is", but I was wrong. What Fincher did with this movie is made the house a character of its own, the audience sees the town home from almost every angle possible, and the camera never stops. Most of the shots are CG, but the effect is astounding and without it would make this movie a sleeper. Fincher is still an amateur in my eyes, but every movie he's done (which is only a few) have been fantastic. The movie itself is one of the few that will keep you watching not because of the acting or the story but of the camera work, and the audience will never even know it.
VIDEO: The movie is presented in an anamorphic widescreen at a 2.40:1 ratio. The movie is dark, very dark, and I think the video turned out great. The dark colors come out nicely. I don't see any downgrade from the Superbit version released two years ago. The video was also mastered in High Definition, so if you own a HD set and a progressive scan DVD player then you'll have the benefit. Pretty Good!
AUDIO: The mix is good it's a 5.1 DD, and the sound effects come out sharp and crisp. The real sound is from Howard Shore's subtle score that is highly effective. You can listen to the film in Spanish and French too.
