Tense noirish thriller of upstanding bank security executive (Harrison Ford), his architect wife (Virginia Madsen), and two young children (Carly Schroeder and Jimmy Bennett) held hostage by master criminal (Paul Bettany) and his gang who force the banker to break into the bank's computer system, which the executive designed, and extract millions. Director Richard Loncraine maintains a white-knuckle pace throughout, the performances are good (including Mary Lynn Rajskub as a loyal secretary), and though the movie may be too protracted for many the violence is handled with relative discretion, making this a plausible "Desperate Hours" for the cyberspace age. Some profanity, rough and crude language, violence, intense suspense and murder. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
