Storyline

Bobby Comfort is the only one of three prison breakers who gets far, from Rochester (NY) to Florida. Once caught in the act of more thefts, he successfully pleads unlawful overextended incarceration and is free to return to his wife Peggy and daughter Stephanie. Mystery crime mind Sammy Nalo tempts Bobby to try a new 'niche', stealing from barely-protected New York state hotels. Clever Bobby saves the day despite his accomplices' violent stupidity and enjoys using his charms. However his own in-law, Phil Parris, besotted with Peggy and demoted from detective to uniformed, ultimately gets the authorities motivated to start a task force. Written by KGF Vissers

Very interesting.
20 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was pretty good. I agree that they did take some license with actual facts (Rochester Downs, should have been Batavia Downs). I believe that they did that in order to remain within a fairly small budget. Overall, I really liked the film. It was interesting and although it was not action packed, it didn't ever seem to move slowly. The characters were very believable and the dialogue was real. All the actors did a great job in making you want to root for the bad guys. It certainly made me interested in finding out more about the actual events on which it was based. Also, having James Marsters in the lead role didn't hurt at all.
