I didn't expect much of this movie because I'd honestly never heard of it--but I was pleasantly surprised. The acting is superb, the action is fairly non-stop and the premise an interesting one. It was perhaps a tad longer than it needed to be (or could have just been tighter in the storytellilng), but I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to fans of suspense/murder/mystery/action.

Had great potential but a bit of a fizzle especially if you saw the trailer before hand.

I saw it first on TV and now I own it. Very intense. Best mystery I think except Sherlock or Twilite.

A movie thriller that holds your attention all the way!
Mr N Forbes-warren | Newport, South Wales, UK | 02/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When you get this on DVD or video when it comes out, you won't want to put this on pause. Ashley Judd plays Libby PArsons, a young woman who has everything she could want . . . until her husband is declared dead after his blood is found on the deck of their yacht, and she is caught with the knife by the Coast Guard. Evidence in court points towards her, she is incarcerated in prison, then by accident learns her husband Nick has faked his death! Hearing she cannot be convicted for murdering him twice, she begs for parole and escapes from her parole officer, an alcoholic, down-on-his-luck job-hater Travis Layman(Tommy Lee Jones, who is virtually recreating his US MARSHALLS role) to track Nick down. There's some great action scenes in the process and some unexpected and unusual plot twists, especially towards the end. So summing up, this movie is well worth watching and very hard to fault."

"This highly suspenseful thriller showcases Ashley Judd's tremendous talent. Not only is she a phenomenal actress, but also her physical abilities in this movie were impressive. Tommy Lee Jones is as good as he always is. His performances always look so effortless, but never less than stellar. The decision to pair Judd and Jones was genius. They played well off of each other, and had a commanding on screen presence. What a great movie that leaves you guessing on the outcome until the very end!

"Will she shoot him? Double Jeopardy is the name of a law where a person can not be convicted twice for the same crime. Ashley Judd is a woman convicted of killing her husband. She is sentenced to 6 years of prison and taken away from her child. After a year she finds out that her husband is alive. Thus setting up the question, "Will she shoot him?" Double Jeopardy is one of those Hollywood ventures where the commercial ruins any suspense or intrigue the film has. As we meander through this tale there isn't any shockers or brilliant acting. Academy award winner Tommy Lee Jones has never looked so bored. His character is an almost carbon-copy of the character he has played in two Fugitive movies. Bruce Greenwood plays a jerk as he has always played on the big screen. And as for Ashley Judd, she does the best she can with this two dimensional character as she tries desperately to bring credibility to it. This poor, poor woman needs a juicy role where we can see her act like I know she can. Maybe the DVD will have some good special features."
