David Tennant makes a damn good and terrifying psychopath, but I spent most of the film being just generally interested in HOW he would mess up the stupid thieves lives than any real investment in the lead character or his rescue attempts.
And when your villain is more interesting than your hero, most of the tension is gone because you don't really care what happens to the hero and you already are pretty assured of the ending.
I thought they pulled an excellent change in expectations when it appeared the girl was dead and thus the rescue failed even if the lead survived, but noooooooo can't have that. Shame.
