    Desperate Hours plays like a deadly cat-and-mouse mind game.... It is downright eerie. i can best describe it as a thinking persons action thriller, but in its wild turns of the imagination, it is completely hypnotic!!!!.

    This movie was great and very catchy. A married couple's home gets invaded by a group of criminals. The leader of the group is an escaped con who is trying to run from the law. The married couple has problems of their own as they are separated. Anthony Hopkins and Mickey Rourke were awesome as always, the movie wouldn't have been as good as it was if it weren't for these two talented actors.

    Nothing wrong with the acting here - or the director, for that matter - but the film just kind of plods along at an uneven pace. I loved this movie years ago, but just can't seem to get into it nowadays. Still, Mickey Rourke is the epitome of cool as escaped murderer Michael Bosworth.
