*Urgency* on DVDUrgency is an indie suspense thriller that revolves around the kidnapping of a pharmaceutical executive's (Brian Austin Green) wife (Luciana Carro). The kidnappers demand ransom for her return, but he discovers that the money is only a distraction to obscure what they really want.

Although the plot gets overly complicated at the end, it is a solid action-suspense storyline. However, numerous continuity issues really stand out, probably attributable this to the relatively inexperienced director, Kantz.

This movie is full of experienced actors - Green, Carro, Craig Barnett, Jeffrey Combs, and Sally Kirkland - but aside from Green's performance, the caliber of acting doesn't live up to what one would expect from this list of seasoned veterans. Again, this is a likely result of the inability of the lesser-experienced director Kantz to bring out the best in his actors.

Overall, there are too many other distractions, such as bad acting and continuity goofs, to feel the urgency in Urgency. As a major fan of suspense movies, if I'm not sitting at the edge of my seat trying to figure out what will happen next, it just isn't making the grade.
