Jeb Stuart (1997)

15 Certificate
Thursday 9pm - 11:30pm Movie Mix


Our Score
This refreshingly different variation on the overused serial killer plot cuts between Dennis Quaid's miserable FBI man on the trail of the killer he believes has kidnapped his son, and travelling companions Danny Glover and Jared Leto - both of whom are just suspicious enough to be the culprit. Writer/director Jeb Stuart (co-writer of Die Hard and The Fugitive) is confident enough to make the "suspects" more interesting than the hero, although his shaky plotting throws up its share of unlikely contrivances. Still, fine performances and a couple of pulsating action sequences make this worth a view.


A hitch-hiker accepts a ride with a former rail worker, and the pair end up in a Texas city where a murder has just been committed. The local sheriff and an FBI agent are already on the case, but as the investigation hots up, it becomes clear that one of the four is responsible for the crime. Thriller, starring Dennis Quaid, Danny Glover, Jared Leto and R Lee Ermey.
