review by
Mike Haberfelner

During a short moment when her teacher Ms. Williams (Crystal T. Williams) lets her out of sight, 7 year old Tory (Francesca Rain) disappears without a trace. The whole school is searched, but that doesn't produce any results. And much to the despair of Tory's blue-collar parents Neil (Shaun Paul Costello) and mentally unstable Sylvia (Juliette Valdez), the search for her is soon abandoned by the school and police alike. Then though Neil and Sylvia meet another couple, George (Tyrone Reeves) and Yvonne (Kenisha Pinckney), whose son Mason (Nolan Ward) was likewise kidnapped, and police quickly lost interest in looking for him as well. So Neil, Sylvia, Geore and Yvonne storm Tory's school armed to the teeth and take everybody inside, teachers and children alike, hostage, to hopefully force a confession or at least a clue out of someone. Thing is, nobody seems to know anything, and the building's soon surrounded by the police - which was a calculated risk, as this gives our heroes and their cause media attention. Thing is, the situation quickly spins out of control when one of the teachers (Shaun Shillingford) doesn't get his medication on time and almost dies for it. And then, one of the police outside (Cody N. Carter) who's also father of one of the kids inside storms the school on his own with hardly a chance to succeed but every chance to make the situation even worse ...


A pretty compelling hostage thriller that packs plenty of social commentary into a genre plot and that really blurs the lines between good and evil, but in such a way that it creates extra tension and friction. And with plenty of suspense and well-set sudden outbursts of violence, the film plays the thriller scale just right, and with a very relatable cast the story's central themes become very palpable while a subtle directorial effort gives the movie's ensemble enough air to breathe - and all of this makes for pretty great genre entertainment.
