With short wave radios, the person speaking must press a button to engage the microphone to broadcast, and cannot receive signal while the button is depressed. In other words, only one person can speak at a time. This is why people say "over" when they have finished speaking-- to indicate that they have finished taking their turn. It is not possible to interrupt someone while they are broadcasting, as is depicted in the movie several times. See more »
Jeremy, I'm so scared.
I know, I know. I'm going to get you out of there. I'm going to get you out in one piece. I promise you. You believe me?
Listen, there's something I want to tell you. Something I've been meaning to tell you for a long time. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. For anything I did with Morgan, for not being trusting and for letting you down, honey. I'm sorry.

I went into see this movie, not having a clue of what to expect. I knew it starred Stephen Dorff, but I've never really been a big fan of his. It opened with Stephen trapped in some sort of box and like his character I had no idea what was going on...and I liked that. I liked that it put me in his shoes. And it continued like that every step of the way. Trying to figure out what the hell was going on. It was like 90 min of the best roller coaster ride...and I didn't want to get off! I was at the edge of my seat from beginning to end. It wasn't full of pyrotechnics and cgi for a change! Great writing and directing! Best move I've seen all year!
