Lara Brennan is arrested for murdering her boss with whom she had an argument. It seems she was seen leaving the scene of the crime and her fingerprints were on the murder weapon.

And when the strain of being separated from her family, especially her son, gets to her, John decides to break her out. So he does a lot of research to find a way. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

Lara is held in the Allegheny County jail for three years after her conviction. Convicted murderers are not held in county jails in PA. She would have only been there temporarily for a pending hearing in Allegheny County Court. Shortly after her conviction, she would have been transferred into the custody of the PA Department of Corrections and transported to the State Correctional Institution at Muncy on the other side of the state for classification to either SCI Muncy or SCI Cambridge Springs.

Really Really Good
2 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

All I can say is... Big Wow. Boy did I enjoy this film. The story-line is a cross between The Fugitive and a human heist plot movie. There were moments where I genuinely really didn't know which way the story would end. Has to be one of the best, if not the best film I've seen this year.

I just had to watch right through to the end. The only down side, were the roles of the 2 main cops. I'm not sure if 2 real cops would be as persistent. But I guess if they weren't, then the film would be a fair bit shorter.

I can't think of any other bad things about it, as it does what it is supposed to do, make you care about the characters and keep you gripped till the end. All in all very entertaining.

Definitely worth watching.
