attention getting movie

  • Dec 5, 1999
Pros: good for a night out

Cons: none at this time

We saw this movie because it was different than the other ones.Very suspenseful ,good ending. Kept you on the edge of your seat through the whole movie. Good plot. It seems like this could happen in todays justice system. I would take my spouse to see this again.Good sound effects,pleasant surroundings, better than sitting at home and watching it on the television. More believable than other movies.Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Jones make a good pair for this movie.Very good acting.
