Storyline

Newlywed Jennifer (Brenda Song) is brutally attacked at a dark rest stop. While healing from her injuries, she can't recall anything from her past, including the ordeal. Her husband, Russell (Mike Vogel), is just thankful she's alive and eager to get her home. As he reintroduces her to their secluded mountain estate, Detective Page (Dennis Haysbert) pursues Jennifer's assailant - his own daughter went missing and was never found. The same fate now awaits Jennifer, unless someone realizes that her loving caretaker is actually her captor. Written by Netflix

Goofs

The detective tells the nurse there was no record for a Russell Williams when he checked. In fact his computer screen showed while there was no listing in his county, there were over 100 matches due to it being a common name. Since people often move and do not update their address, it would not be unusual for him to be listed somewhere else. A seasoned detective would be aware of this and would not make such a comment.

Another daft movie produced by a two-penny scriptwriter
11 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

This film is based on a completely improbable scenario: Russell (Mike Vogel) is apparently a smooth tempered and fulfilled man but he is actually 'relatively' unbalanced. Thus, he will implement a far-fetched stratagem in order to capture Jennifer (Brenda Song), the woman he loves unilaterally, while she is not even aware of his attraction to her. Despite the presence of Dennis Haysbert with his mesmerizing voice, the film is strongly disappointing. I do not really known how but I unexpectedly managed to see the movie until the end. Please do not make the same mistake and do not even start it!

As a synthesis: 2/3 of 10
