She's missing. When the daughter of the President of the United States is kidnapped, special ops officer Robert Scott (Val Kilmer) and his protégé, Curtis (Derek Luke), are assigned to find and rescue her. Their mission seems to come to an abrupt conclusion when the media reports the girl's death, but Curtis believes the girl is in fact alive ... And if she is, it can only mean there is a far more sinister and dangerous conspiracy originating within the White House itself. Written and directed by David Mamet (Heist, State and Main, The Winslow Boy).

Common Sense Says
Very violent movie ultimately just falls apart.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has intense peril and a lot of graphic and explicit violence, including knives and guns, and many characters are killed. Characters smoke and drink and there are drug references. There are sexual references, including references to sexual slavery, and one mild and non-explicit sexual situation. A character commits suicide (though that is later called into question). As in almost all Mamet movies, characters use very strong language.
