Every year or so, you can bet on a major movie star barking “Where’s my daughter?!?” or “Gimme back my son!!” at the bad guys in a kidnap thriller. This year, that movie star is Hugh Jackman.
The recent Oscar nominee stars as an everydad who loses track of his little girl, and because Paul Dano drives a creepy RV, becomes convinced that he’s the culprit. What does he do? Kidnap Paul Dano, of course.
And if Hugh isn’t enough to keep this cast easy on the eyes, Jake Gyllenhaal co-stars as a cop on the case.
