Daylight

I haven't seen a good revenge type movie in a long time, and from what I heard about Daylight, it sounds like my prayers have been answered.  Daylight is a about a husband and wife on their way to a wedding, but instead of going straight there, they make the unfortunate mistake of picking up a homicidal hitchhiker.  Once the hitchhiker is picked up, things get interesting.  The husband bargains to stay alive, by promising great fortunes to his detainees, while the the pregnant wife finds other ways to stay out of harms way.   The film primarily centers around the wife, and the kidnappers.  The twist is, is that the bad guys start falling for her.  The film is much more about the kidnapping, because it also digs into the woman's strained relationship with her husband. 

Daylight offers up some nice twist, as well as a different take on your average kidnapper type flick.  The acting is strong as well as the cinematography.  The story line may drag at times, but towards the end, it is all put to bed with a little action and gore.  Let's just say that there is some slicing and dicing at the end.  Sorry to be so vague, but I don't want to give you the ending.

Bottom Line Daylight will keep your interest, though it may drag in some areas.  The acting was good, and the story was strong, but unfortunately it had some moments that drug down the interest level.
