Double Jeopardy Reviews
The bad guy (the husband) needed a lot of character development. Even those prisoners who appeared briefly had more development than him. I didn't really get him. Oh, btw, Ashley Judd looked a LOT like Katie Holmes in this.
Kill Bill is obviously a goddamn rip-off of this movie and dozen more, of course, but if you've seen Kill Bill already and you check this one out, you'll notice the similarities. Even that fucking casket-scene is almost the same. But that's not the problem. Kill Bill is a good movie, this one isn't.
Okay, the story is kinda interesting. It's about a married couple sailing to the open sea on a holiday. During one night the wife wakes up only to notice her husband has lost somewhere and there's blood everywhere. She gets convicted for murder, she finds out that the guy ain't even dead and the rest you can guess.
It's not your most obvious hollywood-crap but the whole storyline and the twists are so predictable that it kinda ruins the fun of watching this movie.
Tomme Lee Jones is himself again. He looks like a total asshole like always, he acts like one 'til he changes sides and that's it. That guy is one of those actors I can't tell wether to hate him or love him. He hasn't done bad roles, but bad, really bad movies, though. And he's always the same. Just like Morgan Freeman.
Ashley Judd is kinda lame. She's okay-looking but not too great in order to be some kind of hot and wet sex-symbol or something. There's also the mandatory sex-scene where she shows off her tits and trained body, of course. Wow, that's fucking amazing. Not. She's just too plain to be a high-class actressbabe. She's not even that good of an actress to be precise...
This is not a bad movie all in all, but it's nothing spectacular and it's also kinda irritating to spot the plotholes all the time, which makes this look "cheapish". There are some really interesting scenes and really great ideas, but as a whole it lets you down.
I can suppress this movie into three reason why you should take a look:
1) Ashley's firm boobs
2) Tommy Lee Jones
3) Kill Bill References
Kinda sad, ain't it?
