This is a very good movie, very intense. Shows what can happen in a foreign country when you are young and naïve. Even if you're not guilty, doesn't matter, you are at their mercy because their laws and system isn't the same as ours. 5 stars

Outstanding movie. Claire Danes in perticular did a great acting job in this movie. Right to the very end, you're not really sure what she had to do with them being picked up and thrown in prison. The tension was real, their fear was palpable, Pullman was just enough of a sleaze, however helpful he was being, to round out his character and make him truly believable. Claire and Kate had a good rapport that really worked. And while the prison was fairly scary, its the legal "system" there that scares the hell out of me. The thought of visiting Thailand now, after watching this movie, gives me the creeps!

Claire Danes' finest performance...

"...I've seen this movie many, many times now and I enjoy watching the movie every single time, even knowing how the movie will end. The reason why, in my opinion, is because of the great performance of Claire Danes. She plays the role so convincingly well that at the end of the movie you actually buy into the choice her character makes, and that makes it believable, understandable and plausible. In the absence of such a performance, I don't think the ending would have worked so well. I've seen other movies she's done, and I don't think she's ever been better. If she doesn't do another movie or reprise another role, she should be proud of the work she does here. The movie would not have worked without her. Period."

"Pretty good movie. Story line and plot flow well. Stronger language than anticipated. Parents should preview language before allowing kids to watch."

"IF YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT SMUGGLING DRUGS FOR A LIVING, THIS SHOULD CAUSE YOU TO REEXAMINE THAT DECISION. WELL ACTED AND PRESENTED. SORT OF A FEMALE VERSION OF 'MIDNIGHT RUN'."
