samskivert: Panic Room (2)

30 March 2002

Jodie Foster wasn’t enough to save this film from the contrivations that flowed freely through its plot and characters. I didn’t mind overlooking the film’s total disregard for the laws of physics, but the psycho bus driver and everyones’ complete inability to negotiate were a bit beyond my capacity for suspension of disbelief. That said, I was on the edge of my seat at least a few times, so perhaps I was believing more than I’d care to admit.
