God I hate this cliché...
1.Mom needs to get to kids for some arbitrary nonsensical reason
2. obvious lethal danger in the way
3. mom thinks lethal danger doesn't apply to her because she misses her kids
4. does something completely retarded nobody would ever do.
5. Dies because she was stupid, thus won't get to her kids.
HOW MANY EFFING BRAINCELLS DOES IT TAKE TO REALIZE THAT GETTING TO POINT A LATER RATHER THAN SOONER IS BETTER THAN BEING DEAD?! IT MAKES NO SENSE AND THE STUPIDITY BRINGS DOWN AN OTHERWISE OK MOVIE.
Light travels faster than sound,
that's why people seem bright,
until you hear them.
