Medium closeup of Halle Berry shouting, medium closeup of a speedometer revving from 40 to 60 (whoa!), sloppy lightning-streak shots of cars pushing each other around like crash-mobiles. In spite of the way that her son is in the hatchback, and everything considered likely is not in a guard seat or wearing a seat strap, Karla has no contrition about endeavoring to run the vehicle off the street.
After she causes a three-pile up, entire with upset detonating vehicles, Karla moans with alleviation. THAT will stand out enough to be noticed. However, as she gains from her radio—sit tight for it—the cops swoop in on another cherry-red SUV. “No, no, no, no, that is the wrong minivan!” Karla mourns.
None of the activity is even somewhat captivating. There’s a scene later in the motion picture in which Karla needs to discharge an undesirable traveler from her vehicle. The montage is a progression of quick moving foggy spots in which two human figures wrestle while one keeps on driving.
You can’t really observe any of the activities that pave the way to the peak of the scene, which is Berry prevailing with regards to tossing her out of the auto; executive Luis Prieto, in the wake of serving up a great deal of ambiguity, slices to an outside shot of the auto; its entryway opens; and, blast, the gatecrasher tumbles out. There’s no real straight movement from A to B, no portrayal of circumstances and end results. It’s only a great deal of “exceptional stuff happens.” It’s the reductio advertisement absurdum of tumult silver screen.
The film can’t think of a decent pack of snags for the character to overcome. At a certain point there’s a dose of Karla’s gas gage; it’s getting entirely low. Beyond any doubt enough, she later comes up short on gas. What clever thing would she say she will do to keep up her interest?
Why, none; the screenwriter isn’t fit for concocting one. Rather we get a fake deus ex machina and an invented stun startle. Each and every tension set piece in this illegitimate motion picture settle in a way that is beating and ruthless, never shrewd or clever. This endures up to the last plot “contort,” which just exists to give Berry an appearance to convey the line “You took the wrong child.” This evoked some wan acclaim from the promo screening group of onlookers, yet you could tell their heart wasn’t generally in it. They went to the wrong motion picture.
