A sociopathic kidnapper methodically pushes a desperate pair of parents to their absolute breaking point in this thriller starring Piece Brosnan, Gerard Butler, and Maria Bello. Life has been good to happily married Chicago couple Neil (Butler) and Abby (Bello); their flames in their relationship are still burning bright, Neil has a great job, and with the birth of their beautiful daughter Sophie the loving couple has grown into a budding family. So much can change in an instant though, and the moment that sadistic kidnapper Ryan (Brosnan) appears the fibers of this happy family are torn violently apart. Ryan knows everything there is to know about Neil, Abby, and Sophie, and now he's ready to use that information to put the two parents through the most excruciating experience of their entire lives. Should Neil and Abby not comply with Ryan's every demand over the course of the next twenty-four hours, he will kill young Sophie without a second thought. While at first the demands seem typical of your average kidnapper, they gradually begin to grow increasingly outlandish until it becomes obvious that Ryan doesn't want money, but simply enjoys the power that comes along with systematically dismantling their idyllic lives until there's nothing left for Neil and Abby to live for. Now left with nothing to lose, the monstrous Ryan finds out just how far a parent is willing to go in order to save their child when he commands Neil to commit one final act of annihilation that goes against everything the loving father and husband stands for.~Jason Buchanan

This is a movie that we have not seen and we were delighted when I was able to purchase it from BestBuy at a good price so my wife and I can watch it anytime we want.
This movie never had a chance! It was supposed to be in theaters and then it was released for one week in 12 theaters and then sent straight to TV on TNT where it was absolutely BUTCHERED with commercials. This is a viable movie with potential and good actors. The story line is interesting and has a few unexpected twists. Great range of emotion from Butler (300) and Bello ... Brosnan was good but nothing special. This is worth a look folks ... if you like suspense drama. No Oscar here but better movie than the treatment it received from distributor. Originally titled "Butterfly on a Wheel" (intriguing title), changed for U.S. distribution.
I saw the previews for this movie while renting another one. It looked interesting, plus the actors involved are very good. What I liked about the previews after watching this movie, was that they didn't give anything away. There is a deep story involved with lots of twists. You never really know what is going on until the end, then it all makes sense. You almost need to watch it a second time to see the small hints that you don't see at first glance. It is a really good movie that didn't get much of a chance in the theatre. In the end, it will leave you with a lesson learned.
