P2 manages to tap into all of women’s worst fears. Being stranded alone, in the dark and cold, with no cell phone service and no way out. That is the plot for this thriller. Rachel Nichols is Angela, a single woman who is working late on Christmas Eve. After receiving numerous calls from her sister inquiring as to her whereabouts Angela decides it is time to head home for the holidays. However there is only one problem when doing so, her car won’t start. After finding the security office she meets Thomas, portrayed by Wes Bentley. Determining the car may not be starting due to a dead battery, he tries to jump start it, with no luck.

p-2 With no further patience and already running late Angela decides to leave and call a cab to get home. However, once her transportation arrives she finds she can not leave the building. Every door and elevator has been locked down and when she tries to leave through the garage, the doors shut and lights out, she is stranded. This is when she becomes the victim. Thomas knocks her out and takes her to his office and she awakes to find herself in a dress with a romantic dinner planned. Terrified she finds herself chained to the table. Can Angela overcome her fears and escape in time for the holiday. That is the questions the movie presents.

Storyline was laid out well. There were a few scenes where you find yourself laughing at the movie, but overall it was a decent thriller. The acting was average. Surprisingly for Wes Bentley, his performance became average too. Makes you wonder how such a great performance in American Beauty results in a B movie now. I wouldn’t usually recommend this film to be seen in theatres, but with the dropped charge in ticket prices, I think you could afford to burn a few hours and catch a decent thriller.
