This move was pretty good. I’m jaded a bit since it was my second time to the race for it. I have to say – I remember seeing it the first time. I was enthralled, more by the mystery than the actual storyline, but still. Ashley Judd played a convincing drunkard-cop-woman and those around her didn’t do too badly either.

It’s not particularly a new storyline, but it was made well and left some good room for guessing. It was old, in other words, but made fresh. Like leftovers that got turned into something more appetizing. There were a few moments when you could look at the screen as go, “wtf!” but not nearly as many as I would have liked.

Seeing it a second time, I think I can safely say – it’s got no re-watch value. So, if you want to see it, hit up Netflix and watch it. When you wind up loving it and decide it would be a nice addition to your DVD collection – wait. Watch it again a few weeks later and see how you feel then.

Overall Opinion – 3/5
