Movie Info

Though serving a prison sentence for using his computer to embezzle from an international corporation, Dodge (Stephen Baldwin) still thinks of himself as an ordinary criminal. His fellow convict, Piper (Lawrence Fishburne), whose basic decency leads him to protect Dodge from an assault by another prisoner, thinks the same. Neither Piper nor Dodge particularly like each other; matters are not improved when they are chained together. When a prison riot transforms into a break-out opportunity, they

Scripter Preston A. Whitmore II and helmer Kevin Hooks are obviously well-versed in film lore, for they have concocted a hodgepodge that recycles elements from several white-black team movies.

Lots of physical energy, but little else.

The situations are so ludicrous and the screenplay so barren of wit that the best it can come up with in the way of jokey humor is to have the characters compare their adventures to scenes in other movies.

Baldwin, in particular, has an appealing bad-boy quality.

On the whole, Baldwin seems pretty dim for a renowned cyber-anarchist. Also, he simply isn't in the same class of actor as Tony Curtis. Or Laurence Fishburne, who swaggers through this mess with his usual suave manliness.

A successful summer diversion, the kind of film you start forgetting the moment it's over but is fun while you're watching it.

The makers of this sluggish, by-the-numbers action pic couldn't even be bothered to exploit the obvious angles.

Most of non-action scenes are dead serious, and in those moments Fled becomes unbearably cliched and tedious.

A generic buddy-buddy actioner that's not as slick as it thinks it is...pointless and forgettable

Despite all efforts by its notable cast, the film suffers from an incohesive plot that tries to provide drama, action and comedy only to lose focus and fail to accomplish any of its aims.

While not an altogether unsatisfying experience, it leaves the viewer yearning to see the originals instead.

Fishburne does give a pretty commanding performance though (big shock there), while Baldwin sinckers occasionally, but never really garners any likability for his role.

It's all wise-cracking heroes with 50-cent catch-phrases chased into shoot-outs with scenery-chewing henchmen. In other words, nothing you haven't seen a dozen times before.

The plot makes a couple of jumps that don't seem to make sense except to advance to yet another action scene. If only those scenes were worth the wait.

Even Patton, excellent as the smooth Atlanta cop on the convict's trail, can't save this mediocre descent into kiss-kiss-bang-bang clichés and one-note gags.

Audience Reviews for Fled

A fast, furious and relentlessly exciting action-packed thriller that's a non-stop great time. It's wickedly funny and incredibly enjoyable from start to finish. A smart, funny, sexy and exhilarating roller-coaster ride that doesn't put the breaks on for anything. Laurence Fishburne and Stephen Baldwin are terrific, they have have such outrageous and enjoyable chemistry. They mix toughness and comedy perfectly together. A body-slamming, pistol-packing and tongue in cheek adventure. A wild ride of explosive action and outrageous humor.

Typical, overly vicious odd couple action-comedy since The Defiant Ones.

this was a goofy and over the top chase flick but it was entertaining.

Dodge and Piper are both prisoners who end up tied together in chains. They manage to flee from the prison and get to know each other. Dodge is a computer hacker who serves time in prison and Piper is a tough guy. Problems occur because of a floppy disc with delicate information and they run in to an attractive woman, a marshall, an honest cop and the Cuban mafia. I actually liked this movie very much and I don't know why I haven't seen it before.
