Sara (Michelle Monaghan) was a photo journalist attached to the US Army in Afghanistan until she blinded by a suicide bomber.
It is now New Year’s Eve in New City and Sara and her boyfriend and getting ready to party. After coming home to find her boyfriend has been murdered she finds herself trapped in her penthouse apartment with Hollander (Michael Keaton) and his sadistic partner. They are looking for something that Sara’s boyfriend stole from them and begin to tear the apartment apart and then torture her in order to find what they what.
Sara must fight for her life. But have the intruders underestimated her?
Overall, Penthouse North is a nonstop action thriller. While Michelle Monaghan is not entirely convincing as a blind woman the rest of the performance was good. With some scenes of torture including waterboarding some people may find it hard to watch.
