Quality in any languageBy GeorgeLazenby from Greater Manchester , 16 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I saw this at the cinema, and to be honest, I'm glad I gave what looked like a conventional thriller a chance on the big screen. Handled with enormous panache by old hand Sydney Pollack, this is big-heated Hollywood professionalism at its very best.
Admittedly, I could watch Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman make toast, but they invest their roles with genuine commitment, and the adorable Catherine Keener provides admirable support. This is an extremely old-fashioned Hitchcock-with-a-heart style movie, with gleaming cinematography, two or three masterful suspense sequences, and even an idea rattling around for good measure. It's not a classic, but either as a night out or a night it, it's one to savour for the sheer pleasure of seeing top talent giving a decent thriller the attention and compassion it deserves.
Very highly recommended.

Not Suitable for KidsBy a customer , 09 Jan 2013I first watched this movie when I was about 10 and it absolutely terrified me, properly scarred for life, had nightmares for weeks. However I recently watched it again and whilst it still scares me, its also a really good movie, there is an impressive plot behind it which you don't find in many thrillers, really enjoyed it! Moral: It's a good movie, but don't let your kids watch it.
Good storyBy Pamjoy (1 review) , 11 Nov 2012Enjoyed this although it was a bit slow. Good story with excellent performances from the leads. Over long but worth sticking with it.
Fine actingBy gianino (648 reviews) from London , 01 Jul 2012Not confusing at all as I read in some reviews. There is some fine acting..Sean Penn is outstanding as usually and even Nicole Kidman delivers a great performance. I personally think this is Sydney Pollack at his best. Great pot that keeps you on the edge for 2 hours and great cast makes this movie a good entertainment classic.
Thinking about this the next dayBy a customer , 30 Apr 2012Things I really liked... the relationships between the characters, the pace of the film and the scene on the bus was sheer class. The only thing I didnt like was her accent which changed alot during the film. It was absolutely believable that she had had this wonderful African upbringing and the country had gone to pot with a dictator in charge. The ending was ok, and the film was quite thought provoking overall, which I always like.
