Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Executed with considerably more polish than the crime at its center, "Fishing Without Nets" turns the hijacking drama into a morally murky contemplation of deprivation and desperation.
Fresh: Cutter Hodierne makes an accomplished feature debut with this very well-crafted, empathetic hijacking drama.
Rotten: Does little to expand on the subject.
Fresh: A tense drama with well drawn characters and only as much action as its story requires.
