Watch: Fugitive at 17 2012 123movies, Full Movie Online – Holly Hamilton is a fearsomely independent teenage girl who is always helping the people she cares about, often using her expert computer hacking skills to do so: whether it’s hacking into a college database to see if her best friend Blake got an early acceptance, or by defrauding a health insurance corporation to help her very sick grandmother get a kidney transplant. She’s not afraid to break the law a little, as long as it means helping someone she loves. But her luck takes an incredibly bad turn when she and Blake go to a rave to celebrate Blake getting into college, and Blake meets a mysterious older man who kills her by slipping her an overdose of a date rape drug. What’s even worse is that this man then attacks Holly and frames her for the crime! And because of Holly’s less than lawful behavior in the past, the cops are convinced that she is responsible for her best friend’s death. But then one day, while she is getting transferred to juvenile hall, a breakout attempt happens to free another detainee, and Holly is forced to escape. Now on the loose, with the cops absolutely sure that she is guilty; Holly decides that she won’t rest until she brings to justice the man who framed her, and who murdered her best friend..
Plot: Suspected of murdering her best friend, a teenage computer-hacker goes on the run to find the real killer.

Bad acting ruins good script
Sorry to disagree with most other reviews. I thought the story line was very good and some of the actors did adequate jobs. Noteworthy the Grandmother, the female detective, Christina Cox, and the friend played by Cindel Chartrand. But the leading player, Marie Avger. . .., was over the top acting and seemed out of place opposite the other performers. Sort of high school acting when others played simplicity and believable characters. You had sympathy and compassion for them. This critic felt nothing for the leading role of Holly. She acted too much in the part. I always like to find something positive in actors and their work. But in this one, I gotta say I just didn’t like her work. Maybe too old for a high school student and one look on her face throughout the movie. A blank sort of stare. Walking around so obviously conspicuously that it was funny. The scene in the restaurant where there were two cops, she walks out hunched over with this stupid hood over her face. So obvious. And continues walking everywhere with the hood over her head. I just thought she was wrong in the role as compared to the others. Sorry.
Girl on the run
With Ottawa standing in for Philadelphia which you only see in establishing shots, Fugitive At 17 is a decent enough drama about a girl on the run. Marie Avgeropoulos is invading male nerd space as she is both beautiful and a computer hacker, not the image one usually has of hackers. But it’s her computer skills that are invaluable to her right now as she seeks to clear herself of a murder charge, the murder of her best friend.
She goes with Cindel Chartrand usually to keep an eye on her as she’s beautiful and a bit of a wild child. But they split at a club with Avgeropoulos going off with Daniel Rindress-Kaye and Chartrand being picked up by Casper Van Dien. Van Dien slips her a roofie and Chartrand dies of it and he attacks Avgeropoulos when she goes looking for her friend. The cops think she killed her friend.
The plot is kind of weak here and a good lawyer would have gotten her off as there was never even a motive hinted at why she would kill her friend. But later on while being transported to jail with some real feminine hard cases she gets caught up in an escape.
It’s a good news bad news situation. Bad because she’s a fugitive, good because she’s free to investigate herself. She has a detective played by Christina Cox whom she gradually convinces of her innocence.
I liked Avgeropoulos’s character. She’s got a lot of Nancy Drew in her for the 21st century. Nancy could never have kept up and in touch with law enforcement and her father if she didn’t have what this girl has available to her.
Casper Van Dien who is usually a square jawed hero reverses type against himself to play a predator. And play it well.
Fugitive At 17, not a bad film for a made for Lifetime TV job.
