CommentsOne of the paralent [sic. prominent?] themes contained in the movie is that of heraism [sic. heroism?]. Keller is a tragic hero, in that he opts to take the law into his own hands after being frustrated by the slow progress in the investigation of his lost daughter. Unfortunately he kidnaps and beats Alex to a pulp who it turns out is a victim himself. He is tenacious, patient and more importantly, reasoned, consequently he saves the lives of the two girls.
