Product Description:

Meryl Streep tried her hand at action films with this Curtis Hanson film and proved herself quite credible, bringing emotion as well as the willingness to kick butt. She plays a suburban mom and former white-water rafting guide who is taking her family on a raft trip for summer vacation. But overworked Dad (David Strathairn) can't make the trip, so she and her son leave without him--and walk right into trouble. Killers on the run (Kevin Bacon, John C. Reilly) abduct them and force Streep to take them down the most dangerous stretch of river to elude the cops. Hanson understands how to pace and construct this kind of action fodder, but it's strictly formula stuff, enlivened only by the depth of Streep's portrayal and the viciousness of Bacon's character. --Marshall Fine

This is probably one of the best movies to use when demonstrating a surround sound system which has a powerful special effects element to it. The sound of the river as it thunders down the gorge is awesome.

As for the movie itself, Meryl Streep is superb, Kevin Bacon is suitably menacing and John C Reilly works well as a bit of a dupe. Benjamin Bratt makes an appearance as a park ranger.

the plot is a bit formulaic as in husband and wife struggling to work things out. Husband misses a holiday. Wife heads out anyway, gets caught up with some bad guys. Husband saves the day. Most of the good guys get tpo live happily ever after.
