When the detective is telling the mom what will happen with the Amber Alert, a California Highway patrol Officer is shown receiving a radio message that a vehicle was last seen going east on "U.S. I-95." Interstate 95 (I-95) runs north and south on the east coast of the U.S., it is thousands of miles away from California. U.S. 95 is in the western U.S. (a short portion is in California), but also runs north-south. Additionally, the proper term would be I-95 for Interstate 95 or U.S. 95 for a secondary road (as used later in the movie), but not both together. See more »
I thought the acting was a bit amateurish. I am originally from Arlington, TX and the accent that Elisabeth Rohm CLAIMED to have had was way too over dramatic. You could tell that it was fake. There wasn't enough acting out of the little girl who played Amber to really comment. I thought the story told as much as it could. Especially if the killer still hasn't been found, there is only so much you can tell. I was actually wondering what else they were gonna put into this movie. I hadn't even heard about little Nichole until this movie and for her kidnapper to only get 5 years??? What kind of justice is that! He COULD have hurt her and wanted to, I for sure thought he was gonna rape her. But thanks to Amber, he didn't have time to do anything! I thought this was a very well told story of what really happened to Amber. I hope they find her killer.
