Goofs

After Dodge tells Piper that he donated 20 million of the 25 million he stole to a charity, a cop car passes with it's sirens on. Piper then tells Dodge, "Nice, Robin Hood but we gotta fled". Fled is past tense, making his statement grammatically incorrect. See more »

Not terrible, but could have been a lot better
26 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

FLED is, perhaps, best watched very late at night after a bit of a drink when you don't seem to care about plot holes, bland characters and poor acting. Although not as diabolically awful as other reviewers have made out, this is a pretty bad remake of a great classic. What they seem to have forgotten is that when they made THE DEFIANT ONES, it was at a time where racial awareness was so topical - in FLED the conflict is represented by just one line.

The two leads are acceptable, with Laurence Fishburne flexing his fighting skills ready for THE MATRIX. Stephen Bladwin is his usual surly smouldering self, and there is a very small (ie no reason to watch it just for this!) part from Salma Hayek.

Although a little overdone, I enjoyed the film references made by Baldwin's character, and you will have a chuckle at the very final one...!
