Hostage drama starring The Passion of the Christ's Jim Caviezal Discuss this article
The Passion of the Christ star Jim Caviezel is Nate, a husband and father whose camping expedition turns nasty when a gang of thieves uses the family’s station wagon to stash their ill-gotten loot. What follows is a fairly tedious round of car chases, hostage crises and lots of lumbering about in the Louisiana swamps dodging bullets and ’gators. The direction is workmanlike, the editing too busy and the script flat, though the complexity in the family relationships adds interest. The cast is strong – Caviezel is joined by Englishman James Frain and the ever-watchable Harold Perrineau. But ultimately it’s a mess.
