Fincher does it again! Man, he makes some dark movies doesn't he? And I don't neccassarily mean dark subject matter. He just doesn't use or can't afford lights in his movies. This one is no exception. Plenty of shadowy thrills. David Koepp's script could have used some tweaking. It starts out strong with some vivid characters, but begins to paint itself into a corner as the movie progresses. It's hard to keep Jodie Foster in a tiny panic room for two hours and they started to run out of ideas. I didn't much like the father showing up in the last third. Better to have the heroine win her own battles, I think. And the ending seems pat and Un-Fincherish leaning towards the Hollywood ending of his other film, The Game. So it's not as good as Se7en and Fight Club, but still a darn good movie.
