    Starring Robert De Niro, Dakota Fenning (of Man on Fire fame) and Famke Janssen this is a very slow suspense thriller with few shock effects.
    And this is probably the reason that the film never manages to get really going - though you wonder what (or who) Charlie is but it somehow doesn't surprise you to find out. And when you do the film should have just have ended there, but no, in a typical Hollywood manner they just had to add another "dramatic" action scene and a Happy Ending (kind of). :thumbsdow

    Robert De Niro doesn't seem to have been challenged in his role but Dakota Fenning did a convincing job IMHO.

    Well, overall not truly boring but nothing to get excited about, so the rating will only be:

    * * * out of 5

    i'm quite a fan of Famke Janssen, how big of a role does she have in the movie?

    I've just seen this too!

    Give it 2/5

    Famke Janssen is in it about ten minutes tops. All in all very poor :thumbsdow
