This is a movie that we got a very long time ago when we still purchased a paper TV-magazine to know what was on TV every night. The last couple of years when we did that we frequently got a DVD as a “bonus” with it and this is one of those. According to my movie collection database we have had it since 2008 and last evening we finally got around watching it.
This is a quite okay movie. It will not blow your socks off but it is fairly okay and worth watching. It is a nice thriller/fugitive style movie to watch on a middle-of-the-week evening. I would probably not have been impressed had I gone to a theater to watch it but watching it as a TV-movie it was quite enjoyable. There are the usual silly moments that tend to be in these kinds of movies of course, starting with the stupid wife who just has to pick up the bloody knife just before the police arrives. Why do all (most) script writers have to put that crap into every movie?
I do generally like Tommy Lee Jones even though he tends to look and act pretty much the same no matter which movie he is in. I guess I like stability. The plot is okay. It is a fairly conventional husband frames wife, wife goes after husband kind of story and does not really provide any surprises.
One thing that caught my attention was that the car dealer apparently could do a credit check on a woman that was, as was found out later in the movie, dead since three years. I think someone missed the QA-checking of the script in terms of credibility there but then, as I said, the movie will not blow your socks of and the plot is fairly standard Hollywood fare with the usual silly stuff in it.
Weak and from a legal standpoint complete wrong (despite a former lawyer turned murderer and former law professor saying so). Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Jones are good and Bruce Greenwood plays smarmy well but this isn’t a very good thriller. **2.75/5**
There’s a time and place for everything and women in peril thrillers were cool at that time..
I’ve read all the bad reviews-I can say that it’s really not THAT bad-granted-this picture has no realism whatsoever but-I could rattle off the names of many movies even more unbelievable that are still considered good films.
Not that this is a really GOOD film or anything-but it does what it does well-which is to get your attention and hold it-no great analysis, no deep conversations afterward about “what it all meant”. Just a bit of time away from day to day life.
The movie is also trying to appeal to a particular crowd, the type who like these type of “mind thrillers'(Guilty as sin is another one, Malice, Final analysis etc etc) There’s a whole host of movies like this one.
Now this particular movie stars Ashley Judd who is so talented she almost had me thinking she really was locked up-definitely a quality actress-and if your a female and have just had a really BAD breakup you may wanna see it for that “woman will triumph” quality.
Not that I’m saying this movie is great but I always tend to look for the bad AND the good-I thought one of the worst thrillers(a lot worse then this) was malice with Kidman and Alec Baldwin-that one was not only improbable but also extremely boring-but I’m getting off the subject at hand…
I liked this. saw it in the theater and rooted for Ashley all the way.
Seen a lot worse in my time.
And lastly if you wanna check out ridiculous movies(and it’s a SEQUEL to boot) rent “revenge of the stepford wives”.
