Consensus: A talented cast fails to save this unremarkable thriller.

Robert Horton

A generally dumb movie with a smart, appealing, gutsy leading lady.

Jay Carr
Boston Globe

A lukewarm outing that mostly just bops from plot point to plot point.

Dragan Antulov
Draxblog Movie Reviews

The way the screenwriters treat the law is in many ways similar to way they treat intelligence of the viewers.

Roger Ebert
At the Movies

This movie was made primarily in the hopes that it would gross millions and millions of dollars, which probably explains most of the things that are wrong with it.

Mark Caro
Chicago Tribune

The picture itself is so nonsensical you don't understand why anyone would actually make it.

Martin Scribbs
Low IQ Canadian

Double Jeoprady has all the legal savvy of the O.J. Simpson jury.

Moira MacDonald

A muddled thriller.

Ernest Hardy

A fast-moving, entertaining bit of silliness that's wrapped around a semi-interesting premise -- and a taut performance by Judd.

Judith Egerton
Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

The script, not rooted in logic, leaves certain plot elements unexplained. And when the ending arrives, it's no surprise.

Ashley Judd is great in this film. A few twists in the film and a great ending.

This movie is a thriller about a woman convicted (wrongly) of murdering her husband. She gets a lengthy prisons sentence but gets out early on good behavior.… More

Offers a few breathtakingly silly (but fun) action scenes, some decent dialogue and even a couple of good laugh lines.

Whilst I do not find Ashley Judd one othe more convincing Actresses, this is a film that holds yours attention and urges the need for retribution to take place.… More

Ashley Judd does a great job as a woman convicted of killing her husband and realizing later that he's still alive. Tommy Lee Jones is good as her parole… More
