The senseless violence of a Jean-Claude Van Dammer, no point to that, but this, this has purpose. This is an ass-kicking a girl can get into. So why do I feel like crying mea culpa?
One of those movies that starts like a house afire, catches you firmly in its narrative grip and then suddenly blows itself out, not really going out with a whimper but with a big, bad, ludicrous bang.
There's only one place that a movie like this one can possibly be heading, and that's to a demagogic blowout of violent, femme-power payback. Enough gets there by way of far too many tedious detours.
It's surprising to see a director like Michael Apted and an actress like Jennifer Lopez associated with such tacky material.
Too much. The hackneyed story about an affluent damsel in distress who decides to fight her bully of a husband is simply too overdone.
Taking the film as a thriller, it's neither exciting nor scary, hampered by a middle that plays much too long.

There's some fun to be had in seeing two of TV's resident sweetie pies, Campbell and ER's Noah Wyle, play unrepentant sons of bitches, but it's not enough.
It's a cannibalization of "Sleeping With the Enemy," a not-so-good Julia Roberts film, with a ridiculous female-empowerment subtext and a relentlessly stupid script that goes nowhere you can't predict before the opening credits roll.
Say the word, girl (Lopez), the next time you're offered one of these barrel scrapers: Enough!
New York Magazine (Vulture)
Clumsy, obvious, preposterous, the movie will likely set the cause of woman warriors back decades.
