Mark Harmon saved this
After seeing this movie a second time (caught it a few years back on cable) I realize Tom Cruise totally ripped off his characterization of the psycho in "Collateral" from Mark Harmon in this movie. Wayyyy too eerily similar to be a coincidence. Right down to the odd demeanor, hidden rage and creepy buzz-cut hairdo.

The only real complaint I have about this movie was the woman's character. Honestly, she gave a performance worthy of a mediocre Lifetime Channel film, while Mark Harmon actually surprised me with what he brought to this role. His part, although a bit outlandish, was actually believable. To the contrary Ms. Goodall's portrayal of an abused wife and terrified captive was grossly inconsistent. Either she didn't do her homework or she just went on set everyday, cashed her check and didn't give it much effort. The best thing about this movie was the ambiance and style for the second half, which was mostly dominated by Mr. Harmon. I'd like to see him in more after seeing this.
