Panic Room is definitely one of Fincher's weakest efforts (if not the weakest, though I'm not sure I'd go that far just yet), but it's still a fairly passable thriller that has some alright performances and the Fincher touch, both of which are factors that elevate it beyond its genre trappings.
Panic Room is mild entertainment, don't expect another Fincher film here.
Throughout the movie she shows extraordinary courage and her actions feel true to her character.The movie revolves around the idea of who is in the panic room and who is outside.
