Storyline

LIFE ON THE LINE is a riveting action thriller and family drama centered on Beau (John Travolta), his beloved niece Bailey (Kate Bosworth) and the hardworking men who risk their lives to work "on the line" and keep the electric grid running.

Toiling hundreds of feet in the air on wires carrying as much as 500,000 volts of electricity, tragedy is often inches away. Haunted by the electrocution death of his brother, Beau is devoted to Bailey and determined to see her go off to college and away from the life of linemen. Bailey has other plans, which include the strapping second-generation lineman Duncan (Devon Sawa), whom Beau despises. A deadly tempest is brewing and headed straight to their Texas town.

Goofs

When the hospital loses power and the generator engages, the film shows this taking less than 1 second. In reality, the generator has to start, come up to speed, then the transfer switch has to transfer power from the power grid to the generator. This process takes 4 to 7 seconds in most situations, and hospitals are accustomed to this short delay. See more »

Quotes

Carline: He won't talk about it but it really changed him. Sometimes I feel like he's not even here even when he is home. You know things aren't always as perfect as they seem.

Worst script and worst decision ever made..

I don't know What were John Travolta and Sharon Stone doing in this movie, I think this was the worst movie they have ever made..

John Travolta !!! come on man !! what were you thinking !? playing that awful role has almost ruined your whole reputation as an actor.

And Sharon Stone !! what can I say !? It was bad bad bad, bad acting, bad script, bad looks. Bad decision..

They seemed like they were sure that this was a bad idea, and they said let's do this, let's ruin everything, it seems like a good idea to destroy ourselves as actors.

It deserves 1 just for the story, it's a good story, but it could have been presented sooooo much better.

Very disappointing.
