“Astounded to see his vaguely hot-tempered wife imprisoned for a murder she swears she didn’t commit, a vaguely even-tempered professor concludes that he must try to break her out.” Jonathan Kiefer, Faster Times.

It manages to hold your interest for 2 hours, which is impressive, but the films biggest problem is that nothing extraordinary ever happens, although you get the imrpession that something truly remarkable is about to unfold before you and it never does. Something with a plot this ridiculous should be more exciting, no?
Ai, Paul Haggis, vc ainda me mata, sabia? 2/3 do filme é pura enrolação e o 1/3 final consegue dar uma viradinha (muito inha) no filme. Tem uma das melhores cena envolvendo automóvel que vi nos últimos anos.
The suspense is strong in most parts and under the directions of Haggis the film is entertaining. It could have been a really powerful thriller if there was an actor that can act in the lead role (and not just a catchy name) and a plot that was more believable.
