What goes on for the 110 minutes of "Panic Room" is a battle of witlessness between a not-so-bright mother and daughter and an even less capable trio of criminals.

Jodie Foster locks herself into a room for nearly an entire film... unfortunately, she probably should have done that prior to principal photography.

How did Fincher - a director who is very good at supplying thrills to thrillers, whatever his other strengths or limitations might be - end up shepherding such a leaden film?

There are so little things you can do with this story and a lot of it is pretty contrived.

It is despicable to see a renegade artist like Fincher consume himself within such a tired, deceptively conventional product...

[Foster and Fincher are] locked in a box... and it's a box that's unopenable except by cheating.

A "Home Alone" film that is staged like "Rosemary's Baby," but is not as well-conceived as either of those films.

There is no shortage of twists and turns, but nearly all are easily maneuvered, and those that aren't only tend to test the traditional suspense-movie suspension of disbelief.

It feels less like a suspense movie than a video-game spinoff of a suspense movie.

March 28, 2002
A collage of clichés and a dim echo of allusions to other films.
June 25, 2004
Director David Fincher stuffs the film with showy camerawork, including a trip into a keyhole, down drainpipes and through air vents.

The panic room itself is a provocative concept and it says something about modern society, but I'm not sure if it deserved its own movie.

We expect more than just craftsmanship from Fincher -- we expect bite.
