Review

Cliché-raiding and impressively formulaic, but also relentlessly exhilarating and tightly directed thriller from The Accused-director Jonathan Kaplan. Kurt Russell is the headstrong hero, Madeleine Stowe the beautiful 'Ann Darrow' and Ray Liotta the all-American wack-job. Unlawful Entry gives you everything you'll expect, for good or worse, but you probably won't get bored, thanks to Liotta's striking performance and the film's fine pacing.
