    There was some entertainment had here. But this movie suffers from horrible dialogue and rushed setup. When you are supposed to feel bad for Lopez in the beginning, her and her husband are putting out almost cringe inducing dialogue and it was bad enough, but then they had to rush the setup. There is little character development and its pretty hard to feel bad for anyone. but it does get points for solid acting and pretty good action. Full Review »

    It is an excellent thriller. A lesson to all the abusive husbands out there.

    This is a movie but on this subject the audience can not afford to think this is the way it go i the real world. I know it is for entertainment but again the subject is way to serious to give all these false senarios. Bottom line she would stand a 50/50 chance of being incarcerated! Yes. It is not always ruled as self defense. Do your research with National organizations on this subject PLEASE. Full Review »
