Though serving a prison sentence for using his computer to embezzle from an international corporation, Dodge (Stephen Baldwin) still thinks of himself as an ordinary criminal. His fellow convict, Piper (Lawrence Fishburne), whose basic decency leads him to protect Dodge from an assault by another prisoner, thinks the same. Neither Piper nor Dodge particularly like each other; matters are not improved when they are chained together. When a prison riot transforms into a break-out opportunity, they get to know one another better on the run, and neither is any too thrilled about it. The action… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Scripter Preston A. Whitmore II and helmer Kevin Hooks are obviously well-versed in film lore, for they have concocted a hodgepodge that recycles elements from several white-black team movies."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Baldwin, in particular, has an appealing bad-boy quality."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The makers of this sluggish, by-the-numbers action pic couldn't even be bothered to exploit the obvious angles."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A generic buddy-buddy actioner that's not as slick as it thinks it is...pointless and forgettable"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"While not an altogether unsatisfying experience, it leaves the viewer yearning to see the originals instead."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Lots of physical energy, but little else."
‑ , Time Out
"On the whole, Baldwin seems pretty dim for a renowned cyber-anarchist. Also, he simply isn't in the same class of actor as Tony Curtis. Or Laurence Fishburne, who swaggers through this mess with his usual suave manliness."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"One more stepping stone in the rise of Salma Hayek!"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson, MovieCrypt.com
"Barrel-bottom buddy-flick refuse."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Fishburne does give a pretty commanding performance though (big shock there), while Baldwin sinckers occasionally, but never really garners any likability for his role."
‑ Ted Prigge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"The situations are so ludicrous and the screenplay so barren of wit that the best it can come up with in the way of jokey humor is to have the characters compare their adventures to scenes in other movies."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A successful summer diversion, the kind of film you start forgetting the moment it's over but is fun while you're watching it."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Most of non-action scenes are dead serious, and in those moments Fled becomes unbearably cliched and tedious."
‑ Dragan Antulov, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Despite all efforts by its notable cast, the film suffers from an incohesive plot that tries to provide drama, action and comedy only to lose focus and fail to accomplish any of its aims."
‑ Pat Kramer, Boxoffice Magazine
"It's all wise-cracking heroes with 50-cent catch-phrases chased into shoot-outs with scenery-chewing henchmen. In other words, nothing you haven't seen a dozen times before."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
