The detective trying to find the girl calls the mom's cellphone in order to locate her. That is not necessary, as any IT person such as the police tech would know. When a cellphone is on, it is constantly looking for a tower and as such if the phone number is known it can be located via triangulation. Accordingly, the detective would have been able to locate the mom in a matter of hours without ever calling her phone. See more »

No words to describe how awful
18 January 2018 | by oceanspitfireSee all my reviews

I've seen a few b list movies. You know you take cheap cop movies at face value because they weren't written wit amazing twists and acting. You don't expect award winning plots and complex characters. but this was not just predictable. this was atrocious. I like the actor who plays tom from other movies. I even have seen Lochlyn Monro do some better acting. Swanson's character was appalling. the number of holes in the plot, the major flaws in the police department, too numerous to mention. there is no need for spoiler alert. this movie was spoiled the second it was produced.
