PANIC ROOM (David Fincher, 2002)


I miss Jodie Foster. Even with Angelina Jolie kicking ass in her movies, I think that Foster is still the toughest heroine in Hollywood.

In this engrossing suspense/thriller, she plays a game of cat-and-mouse with bumbling intruders taking over her new house. The first half of the movie is great but when the characters start doing things they shouldn’t be doing (especially growing a heart), it quickly loses its momentum.

A pre-Twilight Kristen Stewart also stars and you start to wonder what happened with her potentials.

Rating: 3/5
