Reasonable Thriller for Home Video
Chloe Paige (Natasha Henstridge) and her stepson Jacob (Liam Dickinson) live in an isolated mansion in an island. Chloe's husband is traveling and she does not know his whereabouts. One stormy night, Chloe is drinking wine with her friend Alice (Johannah Newmarch) when a car arrives and Alice believes they are strangers needing information. When she leaves the house, she is murdered by a masked man. Chloe closes the front door and calls the police and the home security company. However the police can not cross the bridge that was damaged by the criminals. Meanwhile the trio of criminals breaks in Chloe's house. The security agent Mike (Jason Patric) uses the security cameras to advise Chloe where to hide. The trio is looking for a safe and for Chloe while she is hidden with Jacob. Will the police arrive in time to save Chloe and Jacob?
"Home Invasion" is a reasonable thriller considering that it is home video. The story is simple and tense but the characters have unreasonable attitudes. Chloe does not use her car to break down the gate of the garage and flee with her stepson. She shoots Heflin but does not take his weapon and stays in the fire line with her stepson. Heflin threatens Chloe to open the safe instead of leaving his skilled partner continue his attempt. The criminal in the truck shoots the police officers in a senseless decision since he was one against a group. In addition, there is an electrical power outage on the exact moment that Chloe and Jacob are opening the gate. My vote is six.
