Trapped in their New York brownstone's panic room, a hidden chamber built as a sanctuary in the event of break-ins, newly divorced Meg Altman and her young daughter Sarah play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with three intruders - Burnham, Raoul and Junior - during a brutal home invasion. But the room itself is the focal point because what the intruders really want is inside it.
jared leto with cornrows has been the ugliest thing I've ever seen in my entire life and I've seen him in the suicide squad trailer
I've never seen a single second of any of the Twilight movies. And I already know Kristen Stewart is 10x better in this, than she was in any of those movies.
From the director of Se7en & Fight Club, Panic Room arrives as another intensely gripping, nail-biting & edge-of-the-seat experience from David Fincher which further solidifies his position as one of the modern masters of thrillers, and beautifully balances its style with substance to succeed as one of the most captivating, entertaining & satisfying works of Fincher's career.
Set in New York City, the story of Panic Room concerns a recently divorced mother & her 11-year old daughter who purchase a new house which comes equipped with a safe room in case the security is breached. But on the very first night, three burglars break into their house in search for a missing fortune which is present in the very room where the two ladies…
I think few people give Panic Room the credit it deserves. The production design is a state-of-the-art masterpiece.
Looking through the background material for this film, it's impossible not to be impressed. For instance, the previsualization process was at the time the most thorough in movie history. Previz can best be described as an animated storyboard, and has never been used to this extent. In fact, with a few omissions in the opening and the end of the film, a complete animated version of the film exists.
The sets were constructed in their entirety at a Los Angeles soundstage («There is no house»). The way these sets are constructed are so meticulously planned that Fincher wore out an entire crew…
Panic Room, even with a multitude of flaws, is massively entertaining. It was one of the last Fincher films that I had to see, and when I found it on Netflix Instant; I happily dove into another dark and dreary Fincher Film.
Panic Room stars Jodie Foster as a separated wife and mother moving into a new house. In their first night spending the night, with many boxes left unpacked, a group of intruders enter; unaware that anyone has moved in.
That's all I'm going to say, because the rest is best left for your discovery. I couldn't imagine seeing this in a packed house on opening weekend, It would've been nuts. Basically, the film is tense. Really, really, REALLY…
You won’t easily find another movie that is equally well shot, yet as average regarding every other aspect. Aesthetically, it is clearly a David Fincher flick, but as a viewer you are awaiting a Fincher-esque surprise to come. But it won’t. Frustrating, especially with all the foreshadowing that is going on here - “that automatically closing steel door is dangerous!” / “oh, but it has laser sensors that will keep it from shutting if something is stuck in-between, but only like twenty centimetres from the floor and the doorpost.” Hmmmm, will something or someone get stuck in-between, because it isn’t interrupting one of the two laser sensors? Will it? It is a bit of a lousy effort for such a brilliant filmmaker and that is noticed in the absence of a real heart to the story.
911 PLEASE HOLD LOL
david fincher is a pretty good director
One of the only weaker Fincher films. While its an effective thriller and never slows down, I always admired Fincher's characters feeling like full people instead of just a person to say some lines and leave, and here it feels like the latter. Also, for a film that takes place 99% in this house, the space isn't established well and constantly wondering which floor is what or where a room is located. Although, its still far from being a bad film.
A Classic from my childhood
If David Fincher directed a movie about grass growing, I would watch it at this point. After Fight Club, Gone Girl, and the Social Network (among others), how can you doubt the man?
I wasn't bowled over by this movie's premise when I read it: how interesting can it be to watch Jodie Foster trapped in a small room for two hours? But I was wrong to doubt: this movies has that mixture of intensity and humor so characteristic of Fincher movies.
David Fincher returns to the suspense genre for this 2002 offering. Jodie Foster is Meg, who's in the middle of a divorce. She and her daughter, Sarah (Kristen Stewart), move into an expensive brownstone-style house in New York. The house's main feature is a panic room, installed by the previous owner. On their first night in the new house, the house is invaded by 3 burglars: Junior (Jared Leto) is the brains, freaked out because the house was supposed to be empty; Burnham (Forest Whitaker) is a security specialist, who helps design panic rooms to keep out people like him; and Raoul (Dwight Yoakam) who's....nuts. Meg and Sarah manage to make it into the panic room which is a bit…
Holy shit, that's Kristen Stewart... and Dwight Yoakum.
Being a Fincher fan, I can see some of the style that made him an in-demand music video director. Lights/darkness- swift movements across rooms. It's different than his other movies primarily because of the script. Everything else is a fairly dynamic story with a vast array of settings and character. Panic Room is more Hitcockian and takes place nearly entirely in one house, and largely in one closet. But Fincher has a way to maintain that deep suspense while still keeping action flowing.
