Who doesn't love kidnapping thrillers? I assume that everyone.Keller Dover (Jackman) is an independent contractor who lives with his wife Grace (Maria Bello) and two kids in a suburban neighborhood. Once the Dovers family go to a dinner party with a neighboring family, Franklin and Nancy Birch (Terrence Howard and Viola Davis), who have two kids also. While the parents are drinking the two little girls go out for a walk and do not return. Panic comes. It becomes clear that a creepy RV vehicle had been seen parked outside earlier, has vanished. Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) is assigned to the kidnapping case. Detective finds the missing girl at last and he discovered that the mother of that RV owner is the real kidnapper. In a shootout she is killed by the detective. This is a story of a father, who could do anything to bring back his child from missing. The father huffs and puffs and screams throughout the film. His behavior tells us that, sometimes a weak man needs to feel powerful.

Best part of story, including ending:
The story might be written, but I am concerned about the plot. There are a thousands of kidnappings are happening out there. How many of them are solved? People should be aware of it while there is still time.
Best scene in story:
At the end of the movie, the father is trapped in a whole under a car. Detectives are also there. But nothing could have been rescued him, unless he didn't have a whistle in his hand.
Opinion about the main character:
I like the attitude of the father. He could do anything to rescue his daughter. Who else can do like that. Really should be an award winning performance.
