Have I used the word "Disappointing" too much in this comment?
Generally I love a good action thriller. Problem is Double Jeopardy is not really "good".
I thought the movie started well but then just dragged until a very disappointing ending. To make it even worse I saw it with a friend who throughout the whole movie complained; "Why doesn't she just kill him!!" i love you Ally)
A lot of the action seemed staged just to make Ashley Judd look good (such as when she drove Tommy Lee Jones' car off that boat), and she did. Look good that is, otherwise I found her performance disappointing and one dimensional. I thought prison was supposed to change people or make them stronger or something but the only change i saw in Elizabeth is that she said "F**k" a lot more.
Overall I was disappointed with this potentially interesting story.
