Meg Altman and her daughter Sarah move into a New York brownstone equipped with a panic room, unaware of how soon they will need it. But when three men stage a seamless late night break in, Meg and Sarah take a stand from the sanctuary of the panic room not realizing that the room itself is their target... and the intruders will stop at nothing to get inside.
Thriller - This nailbiting thriller should appeal to all fans of the genre,
ranging from teens to older adults. Some violent content (and
strong language) makes the film inappropriate for younger viewers
and may possibly turn off older adults, but the film relies mostly
on non-violent scares and tension.
PROFANITY: Frequent use of strong profanity. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Shootings and severe beatings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Chases, fights. COMEDY: A lot of humor for a non-comedy.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
These opinions are a bit lower than I thought they would be. But they're still quite high. And I noticed that even on the lower opinions of "Good/Avg." and lower, most indicated that they would recommend this movie to select friends.
I think the extreme profanity and graphic violence was more than many expected and they actually liked the story but the profanity and violence caused them to lower their opinion.
These opinions are certainly high enough that I can easily RECOMMEND "PANIC ROOM," but I suggest that you read the detailed content before deciding to see it.
Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
Very intense at times, surprisingly funny with some fun plot twists that keep you guessing what will happen next. I predict it will receive some very high opinions from both males and females. Be sure to read the detailed content because this movie does contain a LOT of strong profanity.
Trapped in their New York brownstone's panic room, a hidden chamber built as a sanctuary in the event of break-ins, newly divorced Meg Altman (Jodie Foster) and her young daughter Sarah (Kristen Stewart) play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with three intruders-Burnham (Forest Whitaker), Raoul (Dwight
Yoakam) and Junior (Jared Leto)-during a brutal home invasion. But the room itself is the focal point because what the intruders really want is inside it.
