Gail used to be an expert rafting. Years later, during a family excursion
a wild river, she finds out the nightmare. Two cruel bandits, in the same
river, try to escape and need her to help them.
The pictures of the river and the open country are magnificent and we
really have violent scenes in this movie. I appreciated the "zoom" on the
heroes' faces, as we can see their emotions and reactions. They all were
good. Kevin Bacon, much younger than the experienced M. Streep stands by
equally and proves once more his great talent.
