"This movie is about a Parole Officer played by Jennifer Beals who falls in love with one of her ex cons . This does not sound like a very original storyline but this movie is enhanced and redeemed by a very believable and solid performance by Jennifer Beals. Sadly we do not see enough of her in movies these days which is a real shame because I think she is one very talented , underrated actress. Bravo Ms. Beals!!! (And she is pretty HOT too!!!)"

"Jennifer Beals,long after her '80s success in "Flashdance" and before breaking out into "The L Word", starred in "Out of Line" as a parole officer who falls in love with an ex-con named Henri. She's smitten with him, despite the fact he's still entangled with his ol' gang&he even knocks her out (literally)
The plot is needlessly complicated. There's a socialite with a hit on her,an evil gazillionaire,a Hispanic gangsta named Alfonso James who's somehow involved in the whole mess...even the Cigarette-Smoking Man from the X-Files. The truth is out there, indeed. There are plenty of sexual&violent scenes to compensate for the lack of a coherent plot. Of course, it lacks eroticism and the violence is gratuitous.
It's no wonder that Jennifer Beals has since danced away from this flash-in-the-pan movie. The whole movie is out of line... because it's plot makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER."

"J.Beals plays a strong character but also a woman who falls in love, when she shouldn't...It's a nice story and Jennifer Beals is...incomparable !"
Predictable movie, gorgeous Holt McCallany!

"I love Holt McCallany, so anything he has done will naturally catch my attention. He is the lead in this movie, which is pleasant enough to watch, despite not being particularly extraordinary. The story is simple and a bit predictable, but the acting is decent and if you are a Holt McCallany fan like I am, you will love him in this one, especially the way he looks: absolutely sexy! "
