Liked it years ago. Watched it again and still like it.

This is a suspenseful adventure film. I watched it years ago when it first came out on video. Surprisingly, the only thing that does not stand the test of time is David Strathairn's glasses. If you are looking for a film with beautiful scenery, great acting, and a suspenseful plot, you will probably like it. Now to the soap-box: I have never understood why this is not an iconic film for progressive women, when Thelma and Louise is considered to be. I know serious rafters take issue with the technical aspects of the film, but it's a big-budget movie. No one seemed to have a problem with Thelma and Louise driving a fairly low-riding car over boulders and cacti in the desert so they could reach the cliff and kill themselves in some big, useless statement of free will. At this late date, can we still not have a female hero in a "realistic" adventure feature film?
