Michael Douglas is at his harassed best as a New York shrink whose daughter is kidnapped by ruthless robber Sean Bean.

In this briskly efficient suspense thriller, Douglas is given just hours to wrest a memorised number from the damaged mind of his mute patient Brittany Murphy, who’s incarcerated in a grim mental hospital.

Douglas is on good, edgy form, but Murphy delivers a superb performance as the traumatised teen and Famke Janssen is also good value as Douglas’ wife, trapped in their apartment with her leg in plaster.
