Icelandic auteur Baltasar Kormákur (Contraband, 2 Guns, Everest) directs and stars in this psychological thriller about a father who tries to pull his daughter out of her world of drugs and petty crime, only to find that danger can be found in unexpected places.
I like Kormákur as an actor and director but not here, the plot is illogical, I agree with other reviewer about full of cliché, unnecessary dialogues. Look like Baltasar Kormákur tried to put little pieces from different thrillers in this, just hope his next work will be good as usual.
