What can you say about "Traffic"? The film begins with the words "based on true events," and ends with statistics about the women who are in sexual slavery. Between these two plates is a collection of exceptionally operational scenes that serve to overload of history. In the project addresses some interesting and even exciting ideas, but in General it is nothing Thriller category B.

After an ominous introduction, and setting the desired fashion, the script reveals main characters. Reporter Brea, her boyfriend John, and also friend with my husband and go to stay in house located in the mountains of California. Because the story is transmitted through expositional dialogue, it becomes clear that John works as a mechanic and do it brave, Brea wants married girlfriend Malia feels lonely, and her husband Darren is behaving is disgusting and arrogant. Approximately three-quarters of this information is absolutely useless, as in the review, as in the movie, but "Traffic" somehow actively procrastinate, especially in the aspects of preparation for the main action.

So, after stopping on a gas station in the middle of nowhere, which I love the Directors for generation of disturbing encounters, the heroes arrive at the mansion, but later start to bring bikers-traffickers.

Hard to know what not in "Traffic", because it does not so here everything. To blame the film more than it deserves, of course, not necessary, but the disadvantages there so that I want to stop watching almost immediately. Each scene is approximately two times longer than it should, the characters are mired in implausible situations and stupid decisions. Brea is probably the most sane character, especially considering her profession, but how can she be so naive and inert? John felt wrong for her partner and etc. 

What's next? Assume that "Traffic" is really trying in a serious manner to cover the topic of human trafficking. Then why put in endless theatrical scenes without content of the subject? Why is there no history of women trapped in such a horrible situation? Why the villains here are of the worst caricature of the inhabitants of the provinces? There are many questions, no answers and, it seems that the theme here is added as far as. Have in mind that even the fierce "black" would open the theme of trafficking in women and sexual slavery, well, wider.

Paula Patton, the female lead, also made and the producer of the film, so by she believed the story. However, the actress needs a strong Director who would create these feelings in something compelling. The Director, however, "Traffic" has created something clumsy and unfocused.

Although the creators have good intentions, this Thriller in the end, inefficient, unpleasant and silly. In attempts to convey a serious message, the film definitely fails because the situations are clearly impossible in real life, and finally at the characters behaving at least stupid. But when you start to tense moments the characters are completely upset by his actions. Plot twist turns out to be mediocre, and "Traffic" is not even works as torture porn — hope the cruel treatment of women are here on level television movie. Even flirting in "Traffic" with facts about human trafficking looks a little ugly: it is clearly not that need to "entertainment" movie.
