GREAT MOVIE!
6 September 2003 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Scott Glenn and Sharon Gless played really great together! Her accent was a little off, but she played a great part. An actor from "Barney Miller" was in there and he did a great job, also! (sorry, I forgot his name) If you like prison movies and being on the run, you will love this one!
