Netflix Synopsis: State-of-the-art security system creator Jack Stanfield (Harrison Ford) has cemented his reputation as a man who’s thought of everything. But when a criminal (Paul Bettany) finds a way into Jack’s personal life, everything Jack holds dear is suddenly at stake. Virginia Madsen, Alan Arkin and Robert Patrick co-star in this taut thriller from acclaimed British director Richard Loncraine (Richard III, Wimbledon).

I watched this one a couple of weeks ago and am finally getting around to writting this up. This movie was ok. The suspense and the twists and turns of this thriller made me keep watching. And I appreciated the realistic technology used as opposed to some movies that just make stuff up that people won’t understand. But as a whole it played a little flat. I think the storyline left me asking “why?” throughout the movie and then the ending was a “really?”. There are better movies in the category, but if you like Harrison Ford in a non-Indiana Jones movie, this will probably works for you.
