      John Leonard New York Magazine/Vulture Whitaker moves at two different speeds, as if the mind were impatient to get on to something worthier of its exertions while the body has been weighed down with the bad news a long past has lumped on it. It is an amazing performance. Feb 6, 2018 Full Review Michael Dequina The cast is remarkably convincing in bringing to life the emotional and psychological cost of trading in one life for another.

      Audience Member Way above-average TV Movie! Absolutely phenomenal performances all around. Interesting story but the acting really carries the whole film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member There is always a bit of trepidation when going into a movie that is over 20 years old when you've never heard of it until now, but I have been surprised before so i keep doing it. Say what you will about movies from 20 or more years ago, they're mostly coherent and when they aren't it still makes sense. Fact-based or with liberties taken, I really don't care either way, I felt it was a good look at witness protection program services. Interesting. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A fantastic TV movie with some incredible performances. Tom Sizemore outshined everyone in this film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Rename this film to predictable mediocrity. Acting wasn’t terrible but it was boring and uneventful . 2.4 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/07/21 Full Review Audience Member Must the absolute low in Forest Whitaker's otherwise basically brilliant career. They have made what should be an interesting story to an absolute not interesting story. The most amazing with it is that it's possible. What a waste. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Finally I seen it...My godness why wasn't Netflix or any Chanel? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
