You will "panic" when you realize you've wasted 2 hours watching director David Fincher's worst film. And what's up with Jared Leto's cornrows? Featuring a young Kristen "K-Stew" Stewart.

"Panic Room" is a movie which has to do with a woman and her daughter who are buying a new house and this house has a Panic Room. When the burglars break in she and her daughter take refuge in this Panic Room. I liked this movie because I have never seen a movie like this before and I believe that was something really new. It is a very thrilling ride.A good performance by Jodie Foster.

hadn't seen this in years, still pretty entertaining. I didn't know Kristen Stewart was in it, she looks like a boy (kind of resembles the kid from Terminator 2)

Sarah (Jodie Foster) and her daughter (a tween Kristen Stewart for the "Twilight" fans out there) flee to their panic room after their home is invaded. They are trapped there by the three intruders, who lock the house. Can the Sarah and her daughter escape before the villains crack the room?

Sound like a good premise for a suspense film? Well, it would be, if it weren't for the casting. Jodi Foster is great as always; we can readily believe she's strong enough and tough enough to hold off a whole army of goons.

Unfortunately, she's not facing an army of goons; she facing a trio that's about as menacing as the Three Stooges. Forest Whittaker is the biggest, smartest, and most kindhearted of the three; all our sympathy lands on his side. The only one who evokes any danger is "Raoul", until he takes his mask off and find out he looks more frail than scary. Never mind about the third one; he never makes any impression at all.

If you want to see this as a suspense movie, you're out of luck. But if you're an MST3K fan, you'll have fun riffing the film.

This movie was entertaining but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”.

Suspenseful movie with Foster, featuring Whittaker before he was well known. Gripping movie
