(B+) Panic Room

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This thriller, in the claustrophobic mode of "Rear Window", finds Meg (Jodie Foster), a recent divorcee, and her combative daughter Sarah (Kristen Stewart), trapped in the secret vault/bomb shelter...

(F+) Perfect Stranger

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Was Ashley Judd at the hairdresser the day this script came in? She's usually the star of movies like this -- the low-level potboiler with the plucky girl in jeopardy, and Morgan Freeman around so...

(F+) Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: High School

(B+) Poseidon

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
This remake is so stripped down it doesn't even have time for two of the three words of the original: this isn't The Poseidon Adventure -- it's just "Poseidon." If they remake it, it will be called...

(B) Prisoners

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
The subject matter of the movie "Prisoners"-- parents desperately searching for their kidnapped little girls-- is so potent that it requires a strong, sure director to maintain control.  Canadian ...

(C) The Protector

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: High School
Martial arts actor Tony Jaa’s follow-up to his breakout performance, 2003’s Ong-bak, could be called Kill Bill with a conscience. The violence is so pervasive that viewers can’t help but beco...

(B-) Push

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
If you add up all the recent movies about ordinary-looking people who walk among us with special hidden powers, you might conclude that there are no normal people left. The accountant next door mi...
