Comments: LIFETIMES BEST MOVIE YET
Who remembers the hot girl from Walking the Halls? The ringleader of the prostitutes? Yup, that’s her the fugitive.
Anybody who reads Daily News, knows we review just about any movie that comes on Lifetime. This time — we chose to review ‘Fugitive at 17′ because it really looked intriguing this time, rather than the usual cookie-cutter over dramatic films Lifetime is notorious for playing.
The movie begins almost instantaneously when Hamilton and her Blake Brooks decide to lie to Blake’s parents to sneak out to an overage [college] party at a rundown rave looking venue.
Keep in mind, that the movie actually started 24 hours ahead of the day of the party where Hamilton can be seen escaping police, as she is a fugitive following the party her friend Blake was murdered at by a [really hunky blonde guy, who just wanted a quickie].
Let’s not forget to mention the brief hour long conversation Holly Hamilton has with the really cute looking nerd guy whom she’d later search out to save her life from being incarcerated for the next 20 years on manslaughter charges.
Note to self: not all quickies go as planned [lol].
The party turned dangerous when Blake decided to go into the backroom with the unknown stranger, whom eventually [intentionally, I might add] spike her drink with a drug that would later kill her.
Almost immediately after having been drugged, Hamilton becomes drugged to after the man discovers that she is friends with Blake [because she goes looking for Blake, and the guy is hiding behind the door] [the girl he killed], and to save himself he’d have to drug the other girl too — and plant a drug in her bag to make her look guilty.
At this point, the movie really gets good — only because the arrogant female cop thinks she’s got the case already under wraps and solved even though she has no real idea that Holly Hamilton is telling the truth.
Crazy like enough, Hamilton decides to phone the cop who initially almost (but failed) arrested her via her son’s ‘Bikini’ chat room. Hamilton informs the police that she has a ‘lead’ and would like the officer to follow up on it, and vehemently refuses to turn herself in any further.
The officer follows up on the lead, which isn’t actually the lead [he was blonde, this guy was a brunette] and even runs into Holly while doing so. Little did Holly know, the officer had the building surrounded…………
To find out what happens to Holly, catch Fugitive at 17 playing tonight again at midnight and again tomorrow.
