Review

Our Score
Michael Douglas stars in this frenetic thriller as psychiatrist Nathan Conrad, whose comfortable existence is shattered when his young daughter is kidnapped. The ransom for her return is a six-digit number locked in the memory of near-catatonic mental patient Brittany Murphy. Douglas must therefore delve into the girl's damaged psyche, retrieve the number and deliver it to kidnapper Sean Bean - and he has one day to do it. While the premise is faintly ludicrous and some of the plot developments heavily signposted - Nathan's wife (Famke Janssen) is laid up in their apartment with a broken leg - the compelling performances from Douglas and Murphy, and the pacey direction of Gary Fleder (Kiss the Girls) make it an enjoyable ride.
