Neil and Abby Randall have the perfect life together. He has a promising a career with an advertising company and they have a precious daughter together. Until one day their life is shattered into pieces when their young daughter is kidnapped and the mad man responsible for it takes them for the ride of their life to get her back. 

       I was impressed by this movie from the opening credits. Gerald Butler and Mario Bello play the perfect couple while Pierce Brosnan plays the deranged psychopath. It is the first antagonist role I have seen Mr. Brosnan in and I liked it a lot. Butler and Bello are good too but it is Pierce who plays the cutting edge role. He definitely deserves the spotlight award for this drama. 

        While I don’t want to give too much away this movie has a surprise ending that will keep you talking for hours. You will be talking to your co-workers about it. You will be talking to your friends and family members. Hell, you may even tall someone on the street about it. This movie was simply that good. 

       I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. This is definitely a movie to see twice (or more) to get the full potential of its worth. While I admit I have never heard of this movie before I saw a trailer for it on a different DVD, I am hoping to change that by telling everyone I know about it. It was simply that good. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                Grade A+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
