Actually, I think it would be nice if they make it a movie. If they do, the director better make sure not to make the timeline or confusing.

I think it can be a good movie. Thrillers have always been a good material when it comes to making a film people would want to watch.

I think it certainly has the ingredients for a movie - whether it would be a good movie woukd depend more on its on-screen treatment, direction and acting....

although there are already a lot of similar movies out there, it will still make a good movie with the right cast. it will be intriguing and engaging, that is a perfect combination.

Yes, why not? The nature of this plot is good as any new movie come up. Besides we all have noted movies with this exact format.

As I read the first few chapters of this book, I could just see a movie unfolding! Sometimes, books lend themselves to this kind of development and this is certainly one of those. I’m sure screenwriters would step up the pace a little to incorporate some action scenes, as well. As for this story’s similarity to others, I suppose all kidnapping movies have to be similar, by default. It doesn’t prevent them from continuing to be popular, though.

"The Face of Fear" would make a great thriller. However, Taken is a very popular movie that has a similar plot line. I am sure though that people who love that kind of movie would like to see it.
