Quotes

Libby Parsons: She just skipped town!
Travis Lehman: Yeah, and with your husband who isn't dead because you didn't kill him? Bullshit.
Libby Parsons: Alright, I admit it, I killed him. I chopped him up into little bits, and I threw them piece by piece into the Pacific. Are you satisfied?

Quality Visual Splendour with superb scenery
2 February 2000 | by (Woking, England) – See all my reviews

... but enough about Ashley Judd.

Standard Tommy Lee Jones fare here, a thriller in which he is the cop/law enforcement officer of some sort (in this case a parole officer) with a dark past who saves the day.

Some good action, not bad stunt scene on a ferry, and the ever lovely Ashley Judd, particularly fantastic in her working out scenes that were there for nothing but gratuitous titillation, and who can complain about that?
