Good but not great crime drama
26 January 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Woman who's husband runs a successful trucking company, which seemingly is untouched by a recent rash of hijackings plaguing his competitors, ends up on the run when the police show up on her door looking for two hijackers. Fleeing with her husband and his men she must work to get herself out of murder rap caused by the death of an cop in a shoot out.

Good but not great B crime drama hits all of the typical notes as the woman rapidly finds that she is in way over her head and now must fight to keep herself out of jail. This is the sort of thing I used to stumble upon on late night TV and got hooked on, staying to the end, usually with out ever finding out what you saw. It the sort of thing that keeps you interested as to whats going to happen next (probably the highest recommendation I can give). The cast is very good, including a young Reed Hadley as a romantic possibility for our heroine. If there is anything that works against the films success its that the script, its a bit too melodramatic at times (The expectant wife of the shot officer) and when the film is done you really don't want to see it again (nor do you really remember the previous hour). Still its worth a shot if you're in the mood for a non taxing thriller.
