Goofs

When they arrive in Montana, they first are in Livingston. The next stop is in Deer Lodge, which seems logical enough because it's about 145 miles to the west following I-90. But the next place they show up is Laurel (by the waterslide), which doubles back THROUGH Livingston and then another 100 miles east on I-90. The last stop, where they are ultimately found (Rollins) is on the west side of Flathead Lake, 425 miles doubling back. The fact is, Livingston is correct, and Rollins is correct, but they didn't stop in Laurel, or Deer Lodge necessarily. Their path was from Livingston to Belgrade, then just past Deer Lodge they got off I-90 and worked their way to Salmon Lake before eventually arriving in Rollins. See more »

Excellent Story / Movie
25 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The acting is quite superb, when it comes to the two main characters ... unfortunately, the movie will most likely hinder James Van Der Beek's career ... much like Sleepers and Hallow Man marred Kevin Bacon's career. The public glorifies its heroes, but once that hero joins the dark side ... the public moves on, in search of a new hero. Actors need to be a lot more careful in the roles they choose, because the remainder of their careers depend on the choices they make! There are far too many victims in America ... portray a predator in one of these type movies and you lose a whole slew of fans ... specially if you portray more than one! Believe this, playing Ted Bundy did nothing positive for Mark Harmon's career.

Both leads are extremely powerful as portrayed by Sarah Canning & James Van Der Beek ... I was very surprised to find that LeVar Burton, from Star Trek NG, played the part of Mike Timbrook. LeVar looked so different, I did not recognize him ... but his acting was spot on!
