Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Not a bad thriller, likely to do well at the box office. The main flaw with the film is the film makers' interpretation of the ''double jeopardy'' law: they got it wrong, and thus also the whole premise for the movie. But don't let that stand in way of your enjoyment.

Steve Boxall (46): Enjoyable movie, fairly good pace, recommended.

Candy Hooke (20): The plot had a nice twist.

Isma Manitsa (28): A bit slow at times.

Natalie Vilbert (22): I think this movie got off to a good start, but the acting and plot became more lame towards the end.

Dave Watson (45): Looking for a no-thought-required movie which is well filmed and adequately acted? You got it right here! Even when Tommy Lee Jones is just doing a smaller role to pay the bond he still maintains his sullen charisma. Ashley Judd is semi-cute but never totally angry at her plight. Some magnificent scenery and a glimpse at the spirit of the Deep South as last seen in Midnight in the Garden.

Andrew Simpson (17): Ashley Judd completely steals the show away from Tommy Lee Jones who does not play a very big role in this film suprisingly. Most of the film critics slammed the film but I quite enjoyed it. Good for a few thrills.
