Living in Fear is a thriller movie from 2001 directed by Martin Kitrosser. The movie follows the life of a family man named Nick Sastre (William R. Moses) who mysteriously finds himself the target of a group of ruthless criminals. Nick leads a peaceful life with his loving wife Karen (Marcia Cross) and their young son. Nick is a hardworking car mechanic who is devoted to his family but is constantly struggling to make ends meet. Their world is turned upside down when Nick is mistakenly identified by a group of drug dealers as being a man involved in a drug deal gone wrong. The group of criminals then responds by breaking into Nick's home, severely beating him, and killing his wife.

Although Nick manages to survive the attack, he is left with deep scars and struggles to overcome the trauma of the ordeal. However, things take a turn for the worse when the same group of criminals returns to threaten Nick and his son, forcing him to turn to an old acquaintance, Frank (Daniel Quinn), who is a former police officer, for help.

Frank quickly realizes the severity of the situation and starts investigating the case. As he delves deeper, he discovers that the truth behind the attack is far more complicated than what it seems on the surface. Frank's investigation reveals a network of corruption that involves high-profile businessmen, city officials, and even the police. As Frank uncovers more truths, he, along with Nick, is targeted by the criminals who are attempting to protect their illegal operations.

Living in Fear is a gripping thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat as you follow Nick and Frank's journey towards resolving the mystery behind the attack. The film takes its time to build the suspense and intrigue, allowing for the characters to develop before delving into the action-packed sequences. The protagonists, played by Moses and Quinn, are well cast and deliver convincing performances, with their chemistry feeling authentic and developing organically.

Marcia Cross's portrayal of Karen, Nick's wife, is brief but memorable, and one can't help but feel sympathy for her character. The antagonists of the film, consisting of the drug dealers and corrupt officials, are equally menacing and capable of eliciting fear from the audience.

Living in Fear stands out from other thrillers of its time, as it places an emphasis on the intricacies of the corrupt web that Nick and Frank find themselves caught in. It is not just about the action sequences, but also about the journey that the protagonists undertake to uncover the truth and make things right. In this sense, the film reminds us that the most significant battles are not always fought with weapons, but rather with sheer willpower and determination.

Overall, Living in Fear is a must-watch movie for anyone who enjoys a good thriller. It has all the elements of an excellent mystery - suspense, action, twists, and turns - and keeps you invested until the very end. Kitrosser's direction combined with the performances of the cast elevates the movie, making it an enjoyable experience for thriller enthusiasts.

Living In Fear is a 2001 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.1.
