When a woman and her daughter move into a new house they learn of a room inside the house that is used if someone breaks inside their home. If someone breaks inside their home, the people in the house must lock themselves in the panic room so they will be safe. There is no way in, and only one way out. As our characters spend their first night in their new home a trio of robbers decide to break into the house looking for something that is inside the panic room.
The movie opens with us being introduced to our stars of the film. Meg Altman and her daughter Sarah have just moved into this new house that is three floors high with a panic room and an elevator. As they begin to spend their first night in their new home three robbers who want to make millions have broken into their house. As Meg discovers that the intruders are inside the house her and her daughter go and hide into the panic room. Now the intruders want to get inside and Meg and Sarah are afraid to let them in. Now it’s a game of cat and mouse as the movie goes on with the intruders trying to get what’s inside the panic room.
This was one movie that once it gets started it doesn’t let up. The beginning is a bit slow because all they are doing is moving into the house, but once the intruders break into the house, it doesn’t let up until the very end. Jodie Foster did a great job in the lead roll as Meg Altman. The intruders always remained a step ahead of the victims and it would always help to keep the tension going. This was a very well made suspense film and I highly recommend it. The only thing that threw me off was the ending that was a bit of a let down. Overall this is a very well made film and I give it a 7 out of 10.
