Critic Reviews for Panic
Bromell ... is adept at piercing the heart of dysfunctional family ties.
It's less the plot than the texture that makes the film such an engaging surprise.
Stylish and assured, but it's finally too studied to get the kind of emotional heft it's looking for from its effects.
Radiates quiet and calm, while simmering with tension both comic and tragic.

Summary: Alex seems like a normal guy, with a family and a job selling mail-order trinkets. But Alex also has a secret: He's a contract killer suffering a midlife crisis. When he visits a therapist, he meets Sarah, the one person he may have needed all along.
My Thoughts: "I think the title of the film is misleading and I'm not the first to point in out. Alex is more in a numb state of mind. No 'Panic' in this film. Alex is a layed back hit man who has become tired of his life. The best moments in the film is Alex's conversations with his six year old son Sammy, who is played by David Dorfman. He was adorable and really great in the film. The story is kinda slow but not in a dragging way. More in the way that it lets the story play out without being rushed. I enjoyed the movie and even liked the ending, even if it was predictable. William H. Macy gives a great performance, and it was nice seeing a film with the late John Ritter. Miss him."
