2013 Guide Analysis: "The latest thriller from "The Machinist" and "Transsiberian" director Brad Anderson thankfully sounds considerably better than his 2010 quasi-religious end of world drama "Vanishing on 7th Street". Abigail Breslin plays a young girl who is abducted from a shopping mall. Thrown into a trunk, she calls 9-1-1 and is connected to an emergency operator (Halle Berry). From there it becomes a real time chase to find this girl before she's taken back to the kidnappers lair and killed. The story sounds fairly formulaic, but scribe Richard D'Ovidio says 'the way Brad shot it and the eye that he has and the stuff that he’s done, it just took it right outside the box.'"
