    Yet another premise that can be solved by proper use of the second amendment.

    The actors are chinless douchebags.

    That too.

    In the trailer it looked like the guy getting the cell phone was able to make it back to the car, so what the hell is stopping all three of them from just outrunning this parka-wearing fatso and driving off? This movie stinks.

    This is basically Phone Booth, if Phone Booth had terrible writing, acting, and directing.

    And it's getting filled with water? What the fuck is this crap? I mean, granted, it looks like a small independent film, but still. Blech. Some films use small scope to their advantage. This one looks like it was started as a "how can we make a horror movie on the cheap?"

    So Phone Booth?

    Alice Eve has nice tits and she's going to be in the next Star Trek movie along with Benedict Cumberbatch as The Villain.

    I've seen a phonebox getting filled with water in an episode of Wings and thought it looked like fun.

    The problem was that Costanza wouldn't give them his code.

    After finally watching the trailer, I love how they got around the cell phone situation. "I don't have my phone." "Me either." Yeah, mine's in the car."

    I'm giving it a break because Kiefer's voice was good in it.

    I was watching this preview with my kid when she said, "Isn't that the guy from Drake and Josh"? (Kids show on Nickelodeon many years ago)

    At least he broke out of Nickelodeon - Drake is still making kid movies.

    So, why didn't they park closer? Where were the cell phones? Why not just run like hell?

    That totally slipped my mind. Who the hell parks 100 yards away from the ATM when they need cash?

    They left the cell phones in the car. All three of them did. Because whenever I'm hanging out with friends, I usually leave my phone in their car.

    The one did run like hell, and then he ran back and apparently made it. So who knows why they didn't figure, "hey, you were able to dodge him pretty well, I wonder if all three of us could, especially if we split up!"

    Don't ATMs have a panic button or some type of alarm? I seem to remember hearing that if you type your pin code in backwards it sets of a silent alarm, but that could be an urban myth. Even without that option, I'm sure if you start beating the shit out of it they have some type of internal alarms.

    I agree with everyone else... these horror movies with one killer never really get me because you have to make 100 consecutive stupid decisions for them to kill all of you.

    Good point. I'm sure if you try to smash the actual ATM it sets off some kind of alarm.

    Holy fuck, if we can spot this much shit just from the trailer, how bad is the actual movie? I'm starting to think I gotta see it now.

    Let's not forget the security camera that comes standard on all ATMs that records this entire thing.

    I'm sure they solve it with some bullshit throwaway line like it was disabled by the moon's gravitational field or something...

    [Guy that's trying to bone her]I know, right? You'd think ATM camera wires would be hidden in a hard-to-cut place. Not this one, though. This one had a big red cable that said "SECURITY CAMERA POWER LINE" on it just running across the parking lot.[/GTTTBH]

    It's a bullshit urban myth. Plus, most of the time, cameras at ATMs are not monitored, only recording.

    Shitty movie looks shitty.

    I'm pretty sure they have tamper alarms though, or is that just the mobile ones? I know some douche bag up here tried to steal one a couple of years back and the thing had some type of silent alarm that he activated.

    All good points but when this turns up on home video, I know I'll wind up watching it.

    Usually the machine itself doesn't have much in the way of alarms. They rely generally on the building they're in having an alarm that would sound if the building is broken into.

    DO NOT COMPARE it to Phone Booth. Phone Booth was a silly plot that actually had a good execution. Sure, a guy stuck on a phone risking getting shot sounds silly but they did a decent enough job with it.

    This film is like Frozen. A horror movie that was never made prior because the whole premise requires a series of events and epic stupidity.

    All they had to do was break a window, attack an entry sensor, or some other thing and the alarm would go off.

    They're wearing heavy jackets... the guy has a knife. You have a decent shot if you take him. WTH is up with the water? Did the guy tap into a hydrant? That's too much volume for a small pipe to handle.

    So the guy takes down a cop and dispatch won't notice? Let me guess.. he was on lunch or break...

    Looked like private security. I bet the killer just gave them the all clear on the radio. That always works in movies for some reason.

    You know, I actually thought of Frozen for some reason while watching that trailer. I guess the whole stuck on a ski lift/stuck in an ATM booth thing.
