Double Jeopardy [Movie Review]

Double Jeopardy [Movie Review] | Hello everyone. We're back on track with my movie review. This time, I am reviewing another movie from way back before 2000 (1999 to be exact) as the movie is suggested by Netflix for me to watch. 

I was in my uni when the movie aired, so that was why I have not watched the movie before. I did not have enough money to watch a movie in the cinema or buy a (pirated) CVD or own a laptop back then.

Libby is living her best time on Whidbey Island, along with her loving businessman husband, Nick and Matty, her delightful 2-year-old son.

When Nick invited her for a romantic getaway on a a boat that he has just bought for her, Libby quickly agrees after Angela, her best friend offers to take care of Matty while they are away. 

When she wakes up alone in the bedroom on the boat and finds trails of blood on the boat with Nick is nowhere in sight, Libby fears the worst. And her worst nightmare comes true when the Coast Guard declares Nick as dead after a search party for the body turns up with nothing. 

When the search comes up with no body, eventually, Libby was arrested, tried and convicted of murdering Nick, with the motives being a two-million dollar life insurance policy and Nick was under investigation for embezzlement. Defeated, Libby asks Angela to adopt Matty and take care of him while she is in prison. 

When Angela and Matty misses their visit seasons at the prison, Libby tries her best to track her down to San Francisco. Libby calls Angela to talk to Matty and in the middle of their conversation, she hears Matty yells 'Daddy'.

Then, Libby realises that Nick had faked his death and framed Libby. She was heart-broken until two of her fellow inmates tells strategy to get paroled for good behaviour.

Her motivation to get out of the prison? First is her son. Second is to get even with her husband. One of her fellow inmates who used to be a lawyer told her that under the Double Jeopardy Clause in the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, she can just walk to her 'late' husband and kill him in front of everyone and she won't be convicted as her 'late' husband is already 'dead'.

After six years in prison, Libby is finally out but she is under close supervision of Travis Lehman, a parole officer. 

And her mission to win her son back is on.

But will she be able to get her son back while under very close supervision by Travis?

Plot: 4.0/ 5.0 Yes the story is predictable. But the plot at the end of the movie was kinda good. It was what I hoped for from the beginning.

But truthfully, I am 'amazed' by some of 'holes' that this movie had. You have to just see it to know it. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 Tommy Lee Jones and Ashley Judd were amazing l in delivering their parts. 

Will I watch it again: It was a fun watch, I don't mind watching it again.
