I think this is my favorite of these all around. It and The Glass Web were certainly the two I was most looking forward to. Check this out:
We start with a man and a woman in the middle of a plan. They’re trekking across the desert leaving tracks and items as they go: bootprints on the road here, an empty whiskey bottle there, a car stuck in a ditch.
We find out that they’ve stranded her millionaire husband in the desert to die and are making a false trail for the authorities to follow. By the time they realize it’s wrong, they’ll claim they got turned around out there, and hubby will long be dead.
Wow, dark nasty stuff. And on the other side, the husband is not taking this lying down. Even though he’s got a broken leg, he’s working straight out of a field survival manual and trying everything he can to survive and bring his cheating bitch wife to justice.
As if that weren’t enough, this is in color and 3-D, and the desert has never looked so bleak and beautiful. It’s really a superb movie.
They show it flat on TV periodically, but I’ve resisted watching it there. I don’t plan to pass up an opportunity to see it in 3-D though. It’s as good as it gets.
