Compelling viewing because of the tight-lipped, bull-headed performance by John Travolta in a starring role.
| Original Score: 3/5

Effective enough as a thriller and an indictment of sexism in its most brutal form.
| Original Score: 3/5

To betray a loved one or a friend is a grievous breech of trust. It is a form of murder, brutalizing the tenderness and intimacy of the soul.

Travolta wins hands down with his accent in a pleasingly intense performance that helps propel the story along.

Convoluted as some of the developments may be, the movie never loses its interest or atmosphere within the swampy, backwater Georgia town, and as summer popcorn-fare, it is unusually intelligent.

A good generic movie, with a well-crafted screenplay, solid direction and engaging performances from leads John Travolta and Madeleine Stowe.

After Con Air's seizure-inducing parade of quick cuts and explosions, West settles back into a decaffeinated style that untangles this web at a gradual, engrossing pace.
Nick Carter
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
January 1, 2000
A thriller in the tradition of military whodunits like A Few Good Men, with lots of menacing suspense, deceptive intrigue and even a few 'You can't handle the truth'-caliber one-liners.
