An exciting suspense-filled thriller with a stunning performance by Meryl Streep who did many of the hair-raising stunts herself as a former river guide and rafting expert who arranges a white-water rafting trip to celebrate her son's birthday with her son and estranged husband, and falling prey to three mysterious strangers on the lam from the law, her skills and courage will soon be put to test when murder comes into the picture. A terrific cast with Kevin Bacon a standout as the head bad guy. Beautiful cinematography by Robert Elswitt. A pulse- pounding thrill ride with outstanding direction by Curtis Hanson. Highly Recommended.
