A basic but pleasant little genre film from Adam Randall. He's slowly establishing himself as a capable genre director. His films aren't top of the line, but they're fun diversions that thrive on interesting ideas and are executed appropriately. Unless you're expecting some Hollywood blockbuster.

Matt is a bit of a slob, Anna runs their household. When one morning she leaves for work, Matt hears tires screeching outside. A minute later, masked men are entering his apartment. When he wakes up, a device is strapped to his chest. Matt has to follow their orders if he wants to save Anna's life.

It's not the most original premise, but it adds enough mystery to the film to get through the first half. Once things start to clear up, the action and thriller elements keep it going. Performances are solid, the pacing and runtime are perfect, the ending fitting. A fun and amusing film, nothing more, nothing less.
