Great movie
2 January 2003 | by jamespowerSee all my reviews

I saw this when it opened in NYC by mistake. I thought I was going to see another movie in the same theater. I stayed and in fact came back to see it again. It had some very good scenes, especially the early prison scene, and you really hope they do get away. I even made contact with the producer and thought I could do something on his next movie, but it was called rollerboys and the script was terrible so I didn't even bother to see it. From what I hear it is one of the all time bombs. But see Hard Choices if you can.
