Taut but predictableBy Cato (705 reviews) from Lydbury North , 08 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]A good thriller, perhaps 20 minutes too long, but the outcome is pretty telescoped early on. Kevin Costner gives an understated but quietly menacing performance as the killer on the run with his captured hostage, played delightfully by TJ Lowther. Well directed by Clint, whose performance is subdued but effective.

Perfectly pleasantBy chickenpaste (7 reviews) from lancashire , 08 Jul 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Have a new found respect of Kevin Costner since watching Mr Brooks and thats why I took a chance on this.
With no real expectations I went in half hearted and found myself genuinly interested and touched at the end.
If you like something bitter-sweet this is well worth a watch.
Good Classic Clint directionBy a customer , 02 Jul 2011Love kevin Costner in most things and love Clint's direction and this does not disappoint. if you have not already seen it, its one worth watching.

A bit of a drag but ultimately a good filmBy a customer from Farnborough , 03 Mar 2011A bit in two minds about this film. The script was quite slow for a lot of the film, but it showed the growing bond between Costner (the violent escaped convict) and the boy (a Jehovah Witness) after he is taken as a hostage.
For a change in a film, there is a lot of time taken to develop the characters, but it lost a bit because of it - the film perhaps being a bit too long for what is essentially mostly dialogue while driving in a car.
All said and done, however, I enjoyed the film, but the negative parts dragged down the rating.
Worth a watch
