Movie Info

Would you be willing to walk away from everyone and everything you've ever known in exchange for your safety? This is the question facing career criminal Bobby "Bats" Batton (Tom Sizemore); on the outs with the mob and facing prosecution for a number of serious crimes, Batton is offered a deal by the FBI in which he will be given immunity in exchange for testifying against his former partners. However, Batton will have to join the Federal Witness Protection Program, which means that he, his wife, and his children will never again see their friends and family. Witness Protection also features Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Forest Whitaker.

Critic Reviews for Witness Protection

Whitaker moves at two different speeds, as if the mind were impatient to get on to something worthier of its exertions while the body has been weighed down with the bad news a long past has lumped on it. It is an amazing performance.

The cast is remarkably convincing in bringing to life the emotional and psychological cost of trading in one life for another.

Who wants to watch a bunch of people that seemingly hate each other trapped in a small house for an extended period of time?
