Description:Butch Haynes (Kevin Costner) breaks out of prison with his cell mate. They take a young boy, Phillip, hostage and head out onto the road. When the cell mate threatens to kill Phillip, Butch kills him. He and the boy ride across Texas and become friends. Ranger Red Garnett (Clint Eastwood) pursues, accompanied by criminologist Sally Gerber (Laura Dern). Red used to be a judge and long before put Butch in prison to get him away from his criminal father. When Phillip thinks Butch is going to kill a family that they spent the night with, he takes Butch's gun and shoots him. The police corner the pair in a field, but Phillip doesn't want to leave Butch. He convinces him to surrender, and Garnett is crossing the field to meet them when an FBI agent kills Butch.

Review - A Perfect World

Can't say I liked it, but the acting was excellent throughout. Costner and Eastwood were both very believable in their roles.
