It was supposed to be the safest room in the house.
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.
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'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.
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.
It has been a while since the last time I laid eyes on Panic Room, and as a Fincher enthusiast I have always deemed it an effective yet lesser piece of his filmography. While this remains true, it is more a compliment to the rest of his work than an insult to this film, because Panic Room is a stylish and flat out entertaining exercise in the importance of utilizing setting and cinematography to build tension.
On the surface, Panic Room really is nothing special, a home invasion film that plays by some predictable rules like using a child to tug at the heartstrings and raise the stakes, a film that features flat and uninspired archetype villain characters, starting with…
An OK home invasion thriller with Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart playing mom and tomboy daughter taking refuge in a heavily fortified "panic room". Overall it lacked that certain something leaving me feeling sort of underwhelmed at the end. Not one of my favorites from Fincher.
I WANNA STICK MY HEAD IN A MICROWAVE FOR JODIE FOSTER
A fun little thriller. But if you're looking for a great thriller from David Fincher, go watch The Game (1997).
Un thriller bastante bien ejecutado con una padrísima dirección de Fincher. Pero a pesar de que empieza de pelos y la trama asfixia a cada rato, se va volviendo un poco inverosímil.
Lo que quiero decir es que en momentos de nerviosismo como los descritos es muy poco probable que piensen en realizar las acciones que tomaron para resolver situaciones de tensión. Pero claro, quizá yo mismo soy muy exigente con eso, de todas maneras, esto es cine, se vale todo.
Para pasar una noche de viernes con muchas cotufas.
One of Fincher's most underrated films, it's a great little thriller with some great performances!
I love David Fincher. He makes the films I want to watch; pure, unapologetic and beautifully made thrillers that are every bit as entertaining as they are impressive technical achievements. ‘Panic Room’ is a magnificent example of that. It has a central idea and runs with it like one long set piece, developing and exploring every logical possibility and outcome within it. It has that wonderfully Fincher feel to it that every shot is precisely crafted and every object seems meaningful and could end up being the most important thing in the film. It means you end up considering every possibility and never predicting it at all, placing you firmly on the edge of your seat. Jodi Foster is phenomenal,…
Inventive and at times creative filmmaking, mixed with a few standout scenes forms a movie that deals with a very scary and serious situation, but somehow manages to come across as relatively light entertainment.
Foster actually manages to sink into her role more than I thought she would, and the film contains scenes that really do make you squirm with discomfort and tension. However, it manages to bog itself down with generic conveniences and annoying character motivations/actions, to a point where it degrades the film's quality and my overall experience with it.
It made me feel what it was supposed to make me feel, panic, though it could have done it in a much more convincing and realistic way. I…
Claustrophobic, intense, and slightly overlong. PANIC ROOM is 80% heart pounding tension, 20% checking your watch, and 100% atmosphere. The house becomes a world or grand proportions illustrated by flowing camerawork and Howard Shore's signature horn-heavy score. There's some homage to Hitchcock here as well as some of Fincher's own style. Almost everyone delivers a good performance with Forrest and Jodie taking the cake, (The guy playing Raoul also does a good job.) The action sequences are inventive as our antagonists and protagonist change positions and work to break in and out of the titular stronghold. It may drag on a bit longer than it needs to, but with good performances and hair-splitting tension, PANIC ROOM locks you in for a few hours with no chance of escape.
