Following his twin brother's death, slacker Jerry Shaw (Shia LaBeouf) returns home from his sibling's funeral to discover his own apartment is filled with weapons and other illicit materials that implicate him as a terrorist.

Receiving a mysterious phone call from a woman who rightly claims that he is about to be raided by the FBI, Jerry is thrown into a maelstrom of trouble as he flees the authorities with the unknown caller dictating his every move. Meeting single mum Rachel Holloman (Michelle Monaghan), who is also under the control of the unseen puppet master, the two race to discover why they have been framed for crimes they did not commit as their flight from the law becomes increasingly deadly.

Having revamped Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window to great effect in Disturbia, LeBeouf and D.J. Caruso reunite for this hi-tech riff on North By Northwest. With a brisk pace that doesn't give the audience a chance to think about any gaps in logic, Caruso's well-oiled thriller barrels along as LaBeouf and Monaghan find themselves in a series of increasingly imaginative scrapes. With a great supporting cast lending plausibility to some outlandish plot developments and a certain uncredited Oscar-nominated actress providing the clipped tones of the mystery caller, this is an unbeatable slice of popcorn entertainment delivered with noisy panache by Caruso.
