The description hardly does this movie justice. The plot is simple, Demi Moore is a juror in the trial of a mob king pin. They kidnap her son to get her to vote not guilty. But that is just the beginning. Where the real action begins is in a brilliant performance by Alec Baldwin as a psychotic mob hit man that becomes obsessed with her. Realizing that she nor her son will ever be safe while the hit man lives, she sets out to bring the bad guy down. Twists, Turns and Thrills throughout! A movie you can watch several times and see something different each time.
My disappointment is with the language. My son read the book in his 3rd grade reading class so I ordered the movie to watch after he finished the book. I wanted to show the movie to his class, but when the cowboy came out using 4 letter words. . . It ruined the whole movie! The book was much better!
As fascinated as I am with Laura Ingalls Wilder, I was rather bored with this movie. It had it's moments, but I had to force myself to finish it. Love Little House on the Prairie and have been interested in learning more about Laura Ingalls Wilder. I'll try reading some books, maybe they won't be as boring.
What I didn't expect was an intelligently absorbing entertainment that ran for two hours and 40 minutes, during which I didn't once look at my watch -- just about the highest praise I can bestow upon a film these days.
