From Back Cover:

Russell Crowe ("Gladiator") stars in an action-packed, suspense thriller that skirts the line between love, loyalty and deadly obsession. While honeymooning in Australia, Midori (Youki Kudoh, "Snow Falling On Cedars") deserts her husband to run off with her lover. When he gets cold feet, she's left alone and bewildered in a strange country. A trip to the bank to exchange money results in her being taken hostage, only to be saved by Colin (Crowe), the getaway driver. On the run with Midori's jilted husband and the authorities in hot pursuit, the pair set off on a wild ride across the country, falling in love along the way.

My Comments:

Another film in which Russell Crowe does what he can with his role, but sometimes even he can't totally rise above the material he is given. Still, his performance does save the movie from total crap-dom, but not by a lot.
