Good acting and plot twists; disappointing ending
11 June 1999 | by UthmanSee all my reviews

Registering quite a bit above the typical made-for-TV potboiler, DOUBLE JEOPARDY features the fine acting of Bruce Boxleitner, Sela Ward, and Rachael Ward. The screenwriter cleverly lulls the viewer by seeming to go down predictable paths only to suddenly employ unexpected twists. The weak point of the film is the ending, which of course is a big weak point, but still this movie is worth a cable viewing.

The version I saw was on TNT (a nonpremium cable network) and probably bowdlerized, so I cannot comment on the racier aspects that may have survived on some rental version.
