A Life Time Movie Of The Week, on the big-screen, turned Up to Eleven.Stars Jennifer Lopez as Slim, a woman who leaves her evil husband behind. However, he turns out to be rather determined to bring her back, so she might have to fight back...
Crazy-Prepared: Slim to almost Batman-like levels. Whenever she moves house, she has an exit strategy planned. Before she confronts Mitch at his place in the climax, she moves the furniture around, memorises the whole house, hides his guns and jams his phone.
Deus Angst Machina: Mitch is rich enough and well-connected enough to do whatever the hell he wants to Slim and get off scott free. Of course, what he does for a living and what his connections actually are are ridiculously vague.
Near the start of the film it's shown Mitch owns some sort of construction company
The Dog Shot First: Even though she intends on beating him to death with her bare hands, Slim hesitates and decides not to kill Mitch when she has him at her mercy. But when he attacks her again, he gets fatally thrown out his third-story window.
Dogged Nice Guy: Slim's ex-boyfriend Joe. When she flees for the first time, she goes to his apartment and he doesn't reveal her hiding place despite three men threatening him with a knife. Later, he visits her in Michigan, where they share a bed for one night, and she says he's "really not that bad" (few guys are, compared with Mitch.) After that, Joe disappears until the end credits, when he pops up with Slim and Gracie on a boat.
I'm a Man, I Can't Help It: Mitch's justification for his affairs before he stops feeling that he has to justify his actions to his wife at all, and it becomes a case of 'I'm a man, I can do what I want'.
Implacable Man: Mitch literally chases Slim and Gracie across the entire country.
Instant Expert: Slim picks up Krav Maga with ridiculous ease. Sure, it is easy to learn quickly, but you don't get that good after one lesson.
Mama Bear: When she finally fights back, there is a series of flashes from previous scenes of her being abused. What made her pull the killing blow was when she remembered him hurting Gracie for trying to protect her.
It's not legally self-defense. In context, where he was tracking down across the country trying to murder her, her pulling the same game on him is defense of the self.
Murder Is the Best Solution : Slim was even told that he was powerful enough to get away with it, and any legal action she takes would just allow him to track her down and kill her. It wasn't exactly the best option but it may have really been her only option. Though for this to work we have to of course accept that Mitch has numerous powerful friends in every division of every police department everywhere, among other things.
