Storyline: LIFE ON THE LINE is a riveting action thriller and family drama centered on Beau (John Travolta), his beloved niece Bailey (Kate Bosworth) and the hardworking men who risk their lives to work “on the line” and keep the electric grid running. These unsung heroes brave raging storms and dangerously dizzying heights in their dedication to keeping the populace safe. Toiling hundreds of feet in the air on wires carrying as much as 500,000 volts of electricity, tragedy is often inches away. Haunted by the electrocution death of his brother, Beau is devoted to Bailey and determined to see her go off to college and away from the life of linemen. Bailey has other plans, which include the strapping second-generation lineman Duncan (Devon Sawa), whom Beau despises. A deadly tempest is brewing and headed straight to their Texas town. Beau, Duncan and a legion of linemen are thrust into the eye of the storm and must face down impending disaster to keep their community connected. This compelling action drama also stars Sharon Stone, Ryan Robbins, Julie Benz and Gil Bellows. Written by IMDB

Critic Reviews

40 Los Angeles Times | Noel Murray
Life on the Line traffics in piled-on, predictable melodrama, with only intermittent sparks. Read full review

30 The Hollywood Reporter | Sheri Linden
Concerned with both physical and psychological hazards of the job, Life on the Line manufactures a pileup of looming disasters to which director David Hackl lends no cadence. Read full review

30 Village Voice | Alan Scherstuhl
The country songs that play over the credits offer more arresting detail about life on the line than the film manages in 100 minutes. Read full review

30 New York Daily News | Dan Gunderman
Director David Hackl’s Life on the Line is supposed to be a moving story about men working electrical lines. Viewers, however, might require a high-voltage shock just to endure it. Read full review

25 The A.V. Club | Jesse Hassenger
The slumming stars actually make the situation worse for everyone; Life On The Line plays like an ego trip without any accompanying fun. Read full review

25 Slant Magazine | Keith Watson
For a film about such a singular profession, Life on the Line offers surprisingly little insight into linemen’s day-to-day labor. Read full review

20 The New York Times | Neil Genzlinger
Underappreciated occupations deserve better than the cliché-clogged, utterly predictable Life on the Line, a terrible movie about the workers who keep the electrical grid functioning. Read full review
