Don't Say A Word
(R) (20th Century Fox)

By: Randy Harward

Given the short attention span of the masses, suspense comes at a quicker pace nowadays. This is to the detriment of the genre, as a good slow build, in film, has become rare. Don't Say A Word starts strong enough and maintains a slightly elevated pulse, but is only good for a rental, unless the site of an unkempt Brittany Murphy (who, by the way, plays a mental patient from whom psychiatrist Michael Douglas...a role he plays with typical tepid intensity...must coax a six-digit number in order to save his daughter. Synopsis complete.)

Extras: feature-length commentary by director Gary Felder, scene-specific commentaries from the cast, Brittany Murphy's screen test, English subtitles, storyboard-to-screen comparisons, deleted scenes, set tour featurette, making-of featurette, screening room dailies, film scoring featurette, cast/crew bios, anamorphic widescreen 2:35:1.
