"An unforgettable cat-and-mouse thriller..."
-Earl Dittman, WIRELESS MAGAZINES
In this "edge of your seat thriller" (Pat Collins, WWOR-TV), JOHN TRAVOLTA (Be Cool, Ladder 49) stars as Frank Morrison, a man who discovers that hi son's new stepfather (VINCE VAUGHN - Wedding Crashers, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) is not who he pretends to be. Frank's investigation into this man's past explodes into a terrifying mission to rescue his son from the ultimate danger. This chilling, critically acclaimed hit will have your heart pounding from start to finish!
The film itself is only so-so, but what saves it is Vince Vaughn's creepy as hell performance as "Rick," who is - on the surface - a nice guy who is loved by the entire town and who has recently married and settled down. When his new stepson claims to have witnessed him commit a brutal crime, the local police are quick to dismiss the allegations, given the boy's history of lies and petty crimes, but the boy's real father thinks differently. His son has never lied to him and his paternal instincts tell him that he should trust his child. But just as nobody believed his delinquent son, nobody believes him and he must find a way to discover the truth and save his son from a cold-blooded killer.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
