"PANIC ROOM takes director David Fincher (Alien³, Se7en, Zodiac) and teams him up w/ Jodie Foster (The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane, Taxi Driver, Silence Of The Lambs, The Brave One) and Kristen Stewart as an innocent mother and daughter caught in a robbery gone disatrously wrong. The pair must survive a hellish night of violence when a trio of criminals enter their fortress-like home. The badguy characters range from Jared Leto's (American Psycho, Requiem For A Dream) barely sane "leader" role, to Dwight Yoakam's (Slingblade) psychotic, unpredictable "wild card". Forest Whitaker is the man in the middle, as the only crook w/ a working brain or heart. Fincher takes what could have been a rather dull location, and shoots it in a manic, funhouse-ride style that keeps everything jumping. We go from room to room, upstairs and down, in some pretty inventive ways! The aforementioned cast is more than able to create the right amount of building tension and madness. I must make special mention of Yoakam's Raoul character. Mr. Yoakam is just so good at playing utterly detestible, frightening scumbags! Raoul could easily be Doyle Hargraves' homicidal brother!

"After purchasing a brownstone in New York, a thirty-something divorced woman and her daughter are forced to take advantage of the hidden room- the "panic room" -when intruders break into their home. However, they soon find that what the intruders want is locked in the panic room with them. When the opening credits are cooler than entire movies you've seen, you know you're in for something good. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat.
