looking forward to the second part... So far it is very very good... a bit slow at times, but excellent acting, and very very realistic... (SPOILER) I also like the different themes through the movie.. family tradition vs family love, for the parents..., using innocent 'mules' for drug trafficking... corruption of Asian court/gov systems... And their is no truth/justice in any court system! Looking forward to the second DVD!!

Had seen it a long long time ago, - so it was almost "as new" to us. Gripping, plausible story, well acted by wonderful Denham Elliot and Nicole Kidman. We couldn't take our eyes of it and saw the whole series in only two session. Can thoroughly recommend it.

Not just a prison break tale, but a story about how history has a habit of repeating itself, and the need to find out where you came from.

AND A HALF. Colour was strange on the DVD. However, enjoyed watching this mini-series for the first time at last. Kidman shows what a star she was to become. Music was over the top and some of the plot points strained credulity but a very engrossing story well told.

You can see why Nicole Kidman became a superstar - she is brilliant in this role. This is one of those movies that never dates. Can't wait to see part 2.

This is one of the best films I have seen in a long time. The scenes in Thailand remind me so much of documentaries I have seen. It is hard to disbelieve the story, fictional as it may be. The acting is superb.

I thoroughly enjoyed this classic mini-series with great performances from all the stars. Also thought provoking about possibility of innocent people facing death because of the zero tolerance for drug trafficking in asian countries.

AUSSIE movies are the BEST. Young Kidman is much better ,than the mature one. Seems that Hollywood cramped her style?!!? Elliott's performance is excepcional! The direction and storyline soperb. All in all I loved it. Warning,it is a three part series,so make sure you get the two discs together.
