DON'T CARE WHAT THE CRITICS SAY, IT WAS VERY ENTERTAINING

If you listen to the critics who knows where we would be. I

ignored the comments that this was another Fugitive only a female version, but found the movie fast paced and well acted by Tommy Lee Jones and Ashley Judd, as well as the whole cast. I liked the story line and it was exciting and the time just flew by. Go see it you will enjoy it!!!!

Ashley Judd carries the movie...

Ashley Judd is very beautiful and apt for this role. The way she characterizes a wife,a mother and an victim is too good. Hats off to Ashley Judd. After Elizabeth Taylor ,I like the acting skill of this fine women. Ppl - watch this movie.Its a nice dose of suspense,romance and dose of other emotions as well and Ashley Judd did her best. The story is subtle. Good screen play. Good direction. All in all good investment of time. Watch it for Ashley.They say that this movie has some issue in the legal interpretation of some legal point but I think that it has no relevance to the movie in so far as the way the screen play is done.I believe that the movie doesn't weigh on that interpretation alone as the climax just sinks into us without that gravity. I personally think though the story is good,Ashley carried it excellently well and an extremely delicate one at that. Infinite thanks to this beauty of an actor and a person. Thanks all.

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".

What's wrong with you people??

I couldn't belive it when I read these comments and most of them were negative. This is one of my favorite movies!! I absolutely loved it. I think Ashley Judd is an incredible actress and Libby is my favorite character that she plays. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. What I love most is all the steps she goes through to finally find her husband and son. I just feel like screaming "GO Girl!!" like half the time. I love the character of Libby and how she is so strong and smart and doesn't take any crap from anybody. I don't know why people didn't like this movie more. I think it is wonderful and really touching about a mother's love. Regardless of what these other comments say... go see this movie!! Decide for yourself what you think but I doubt you will be bored. Wonderful movie!! 10/10

Quality Visual Splendour with superb scenery

... but enough about Ashley Judd.

Standard Tommy Lee Jones fare here, a thriller in which he is the cop/law enforcement officer of some sort (in this case a parole officer) with a dark past who saves the day.

Some good action, not bad stunt scene on a ferry, and the ever lovely Ashley Judd, particularly fantastic in her working out scenes that were there for nothing but gratuitous titillation, and who can complain about that?
