a bit thrilling, but terrible acting
A little girl was taken from her room. The kidnapping has revealed a few other secrets about this model family. The mother's elicit affair, some mysteriously missing characters from their past, and a family friend who seems too close for comfort. I found this movie very poorly acted; this was accentuated by the poor dialog. The film also had quite a few scattered subplots and characters. Special Agent Beck, who was leading the FBI in solving the case was involved in an accident that gave her second sight. This 'ability' did not add anything to the plot - it would've made it more exciting if they had actually figured things out naturally, as Agents do. To me, it was just a weak way of solving a mystery. There also were some character who didn't add anything to the direction of the movie. They weren't antagonist, nor did they really help any of the situations. Despite all this, I had to watch the film till the end. Perhaps Im just a sucker for cheap thrillers, but in either case, it was an easy and forgettable guilty pleasure.
