Slappy McGee's rating of the film The Trap

(4.5 stars) A powerful thriller that elevates itself beyond the trappings of a mere genre film. It's so grounded in the elements of a basic human need: love of family. As it unfolds, we get more and more wrapped up in the protagonist's plight. Yet the story doesn't fall into the trap of him making bad decision after bad decision. He makes the same choices that most of us would make - choices he MUST make.
