'Panic Room' in IGN's 'Top 10 movie based in one location' list


IGN - Unsurprisingly set in a hi-tech panic room (if there wasn't a room and at least a little panic, we'd be on the phone to Trading Standards), this is David Fincher flexing his muscles: he didn't need to make this movie, but wanted to show he could anyway. Jodie Foster and a young Kristen Stewart are the mother and daughter holed up in an expensive, oversized coffin, while Forest Whitaker and his cronies attempt to infiltrate the impenetrable. Fincher, meanwhile, swings his camera up and down stairs, in and out of air vents, and at one point, through the handle of a coffee pot for absolutely no reason. Pfft. Show off.
