Storyline

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. Her husband, John would spend the next few years trying to get her released, but there's no evidence that negates the evidence against her. 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

When John and Lara bypass the zoo exit they continue on the Highland Park Bridge. Shortly after, after the car avoids a truck and spins out of control, they come to a stop. As they exit the vehicle, you can clearly see Chestnut Ridge mountain in the background putting them on toll Route 43 outside of Uniontown, PA. This is over an hour-and-a-half from the Pittsburgh zoo. See more »

Really Really Good
2 December 2010 | by blackledgecSee 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.
