Honestly, I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this flick beforehand. Indeed, everything about it sounded terribly generic (the title, the poster, the plot,โ€ฆ) but, eventually, I thought it was not bad at all.

"First viewing - June 3rd This reminded me a little of The Vanishing, though of course it's nowhere near as good. The cast mostly does a really good job though, and the final sequence had me on the edge of my seat. Kurt Russell is of course the main draw here, and while it's far from his best role he carries the film well. So overall I enjoyed it, though it's nothing exceptional enough to warrant a second viewing."
