Great concept, great cast, and great entertainment. Panic Room revolves around a mother and daughters struggle to defend their million dollar town house on the night they move into it. Complete with several floors and an impenetrable steel room, it provides the ideal setting for a cat and mouse chase between them and 3 burglars. Typically the items the thieves are after are located in the safe room hence why they persist with their intrusion, whilst inside, the two females conjure up ideas to attract help. With the majority of the movie taking place in one room, it's reasonable to assume it could become dull, yet this is never the case. There is plenty of originality to keep the suspense rolling with the cast taking it in turns to have the upper hand, both in and outside of the room. Definitely an advert for girl power with two strong leads often getting the better of the three male counterparts, despite them not having access to an Arsenal of weopans, although not all of the villains are as brutal as one another. The range of personalities and traits in this film add to its appeal, with the merciless Raoul, sneaky Junior, and big softy Burnham all having opposing views as to how their heist should proceed, whilst the girls must overcome their physical disadvantage and diabetes in order to survive in such a claustrophobic environment. The success of this movie is of course helped by a very familiar looking group of faces, which ensure the story is solidly performed. It's one which I'd happily watch over again despite it not being my usual crude humour or slasher thriller, which may go some way to further strengthening its status of being a quality production.
