Inhale is a 2010 crime thriller film directed by Baltasar Kormákur and starring Dermot Mulroney, Diane Kruger, and Sam Shepard. The story follows a desperate father named Paul Stanton (Mulroney) who will do anything to save the life of his daughter who is dying from a rare lung disease. When traditional treatments fail, he learns of a controversial organ transplant program in Mexico that has the potential to cure his daughter's illness. Stanton travels to Mexico with his wife and daughter to meet with the doctor who runs the program, but he quickly discovers that the program is part of a criminal enterprise that preys on the desperation of others.

As the plot unfolds, Stanton becomes enmeshed in a web of deceit, violence, and corruption that tests his moral values and threatens his family's safety. He finds himself at odds with both the criminal underworld and the authorities, who are working to bring the transplant program down. Along the way, Stanton allies himself with a former boxer named Javier (played by Vincent Perez) who has a tragic past of his own and proves to be a surprisingly capable ally.

One of the strongest aspects of Inhale is its portrayal of the lengths that a parent will go to in order to save their child. Mulroney gives a powerful performance as a man who is pushed beyond his limits and forced to confront uncomfortable truths about himself in the process. Similarly, Kruger brings both vulnerability and strength to her role as Stanton's wife, who supports her husband's actions but is also aware of the risks involved.

The film's setting in Mexico is also a key element of the story, as it allows for a commentary on the complex issues around organ trafficking and the exploitation of the poor by powerful criminals. The local characters are vividly drawn, with Perez's performance as Javier being a standout in the film. Shepard also has a small but memorable role as a judge who is determined to bring down the transplant program and put the criminals behind bars.

Although Inhale has a somewhat predictable plot, it is elevated by strong performances and a meaningful exploration of themes such as morality, justice, and the value of human life. The film's pacing is brisk, with plenty of suspenseful moments and tense action scenes. The climax of the film is particularly gripping and will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Overall, Inhale is a compelling crime thriller that will appeal to fans of the genre, as well as anyone who appreciates a well-crafted story with strong performances. While it may not break any new ground, it is a solid and engaging film that delivers on its promises.

Inhale is a 2010 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5 and a MetaScore of 39.
