Storyline

In Belgarde County, in Illinois, the wanted criminal John Carl Lowman runs out of gas in an isolated area; he carjacks a car with a couple and kidnaps the diabetic teenager Amy Kennedy. The FBI Agent Megan Saunders, whose partner and lover was killed by Lowman a couple of years ago in a bank heist, assumes the investigation. She finds out that Amy needs an insulin injection in less than 12 hours, otherwise she will die. However, when her superior arrives he dismisses Megan as she is still haunted by her failure in the past. But she seeks out her absent father to ask for some advice to help her to find Amy.

Derivative but workmanlike and exciting thriller
30 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, the script for "12 Hours to Live" is patched together Frankenstein-style from some of the oldest thriller tropes in history, but if you can get past that and some hideously over-directed flashbacks, the main part of this film is quite good. The plotting is coherent and believable, the human drama genuinely touching and the characters are multidimensional. Even the villain evokes pity and pathos instead of just being a stick-figure menace. The acting is also excellent, with Ione Skye as the heroine (an FBI agent with a personal as well as a professional interest in catching the bad guy) and Kevin Durand as the villain (a psychopathic criminal specializing in bank robberies and not sure himself, as he tells us in the film, why he does what he does) standing out. This one is well worth watching and several cuts above the Lifetime TV-movie norm for this genre.
