Meryl Streep is my favorite actress and I’m not the only one who thinks she is the best actress in the world. Not only she is incredibly talented, she is also really versatile and she has done movies in almost any genre you could think of. She didn’t do much action movies though and I think this flick was the only one she did in this genre. As usual, she completely nailed her performance and, ... read more

“Meryl Streep is my favorite actress and I’m not the only one who thinks she is the best actress in the world. Not only she is incredibly talented, she is also really versatile and she has done movies in almost any genre you could think of. She didn’t do much action movies though and I think this flick was the only one she did in this genre. As usual, she completely nailed her performance and, as a result, you can see how more compelling an action flick movie can be when the main character is played by a very good actor (see also ‘The Bourne Identity’ for example). This movie was also directed by Curtis Hanson, a decent director who has just recently retired due to Alzheimers. His previous directing effort, ‘The Hand that Rocks the Craddle’ was a hit but it is above all his foll” read more

When I was 29... movie diary (Finished) (214 movies items)

"March 26, 2013 REWATCH I love Kevin Bacon when he plays nasty bad ass, he's very fit for such performances. Similarly, in the case of this film. I remember this movie from my childhood, I was delighted with it. Beautiful views, the family that wants to get close, scary bandits who take advantage of every opportunity to realize their plans. Maybe I have too much affection for this movie to look at it critically, but I really think it's a good thriller. previously: 8/10 currently: 8/10"

"Watched: 12.11 -------- Viihdyttävä perheseikkailu, jossa perheen yhteen hiileen puhaltamista on mielenkiintoista seurata. Bacon on tuttu tyypillinen limanuljaska ja Reilly taasen hänen vajaahko apuri."
