Panic Room (2002) – A Rewatched Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
For every high brow, award nominated feature that David Fincher has made, equally he likes to throw in a few popcorn pleasers. Panic Room is one of these – a tense, fun ride of a movie with a good cast and enough fun and games to make it’s near two hour run time fly by, but one that wasn’t troubling the academy much.  Jodie Foster is great, as is Kristen Stewart in an early role, and Leto brings a nice mean streak to the rich, entitled heir leading the heist.  Fincher keeps it moving fast and Darius Khondji is obviously enjoying getting creative in the tight spaces.   Well worth a revisit. 

Best Bit: Get the phone

Worth A Rewatch: For sure. Panic Room is good fun

If You Liked this Try: The Social Network, The Game, Disturbia

7 out of 10 stars
