David Kirmani,a medical professional, lives in an apartment with his sweetheart, Erica Bain, a radio host, and his dog. They usually take the dog out for a stroll in nearby Central Park and let him run and fetch. One day while at the park they let the dog run without a leash, and when he does not return or respond to their calls, they frantically search for him. They eventually find him being held by three men who want a reward. When David refuses, they start to molest Erica and David intervenes. Two of the men assault the couple, while the third uses a camcorder to film this incident. Erica is knocked unconscious, and regains her senses several days later in a hospital. She is told the shocking news that David was killed and the dog is missing. A traumatized Erica returns home to try and regain her life. She also visits the police station but does not get much help. Fearful of a repeat of this type of incident...

I really liked this movie. Jodie Foster is definately good at playing the tortured women. What's different from this movie and her last, Flightplan, is that you can really feel the pain she is going through after her loss. Definately a great job by Foster. I would go see this movie again, and I would highly recommend.


Jodie Foster and Terrence Howard were marvelous in their roles. While others suggest the movie was boring, I cannot. I love to watch Jodie Foster act, so I went to see this movie expecting it to be boring after reading all the comments and I was totally surprised. Go judge for yourselves...


Watched this Friday the 14th of sept....a very good movie with an excellent plot...but be forewarned, be prepared for a full two hours of movie watching. Not that this is a bad thing. The film takes the time to show how a woman living in New York City "reacts" to a life-changing brutal attack on her and her fiance'...Of course it shows how the good and bad side of what a police investigation unfolds, the stages of recovery for a now mentally shattered woman, the relationship that forms between her and one of the detectives in charge, and finally revenge, oh sweet revenge. The film makers include not only dirt-criminal types who get the "grudge", but also a high-end dirty excecutive type who gets his as well. I must admit, Jodi Foster's character grew on me as the movie went on, and there were times when people were actually clapping when the "bad guys" got "popped." A bizarre ending (even fido gets saved) left me smiling...so would i see it again? sure, once its out on dvd!! prb


Excellent Jodie Foster and Terrance Howard played superb roles... I hope this movie and both actors get nominated for oscars


I just saw this at a screening and I, along with the rest of the audience loved it. There was clapping from the entire audience during several key moments. Surprisingly, there was also a bit of comedy in the movie. I did not expect to laugh at a movie like this, but the sarcastic comedy of the detectives between crucial scenes was a great icebreaker from the tension of the other scenes. This movie will make you tense up, feel pain in your heart, laugh at moments and then make you let out a big cheer near the end. This film got a very long applause when the credits rolled...Very well done!
