Movie Reviews

No Alibi
McLean Hyde | Danville, CA United States | 09/26/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"In "The Alibi" starring Dean Cain and Eric Roberts, Dean Cain plays,Bob, a young corporate up and comer who plays basket ball with his brother and childhood friends every Sunday. This all changes when he meets Camile, played by Lexa Doig. In Camile, Bob has suddenly found true love. But Camile has a secret and that secret involves the unexpected death of Bob's brother. As Bob and Camile try to grow in their love, Bob also tries to solve the murder of his brother. The two quests are at ends as Bob cannot rest until he knows what has happened to his brother and that knowledge will destroy what he has found with Camile. I found the plot and development of the story intreging. Dean Cain does a great job as Bob, showing a wide range of emotions and determination. Eric Roberts is a great villian - I really hated him in the end. Lexa Doig is more limited in her range of emotions but is convincing in her part. My biggest disappointment with the film was that it was not long enough. It skipped several time frames (as in the scene where they are discussing Christmas presents and the next scene is New Year's Eve) which gave it a disjointed feel and at 90 minutes in length, it could certainly have had smoother transitions. Overall, I enjoyed the film and am glad I purchased it."
A disappointment, yet intriguing

"The DVD isn't in widescreen format, which is always disconcerting. However, the film itself is uneven. The main performances are all good, with a particularly fine performance by Dean Cain in the lead as a man who's obsessed with finding out who killed his brother and why, then has to deal with the fact his own wife was involved. Eric Roberts is fine playing a man who's gone over the edge (a type he's done in the past). He's not playing a man you love to hate, but just a man you hate. The female lead gives an effective performance in a two-dimensional role, but it's an impossible role to play, like being cast as Helen of Troy or some other legendary beauty - you can't win. Literally every lead male character in the film falls for her, and since all three guys are so different in type you can't figure they'd fall for the same type of woman, so what makes this one so special? That kind of conceit in a film is trying to force a viewer to suspend disbelief. It doesn't work, neither does the fact she's apparently not too bright, because the first half of the film is so implausible she should have seen it all coming. By the final half of the film, however, the plot becomes tighter, more tense, and this leads to a satisfactory finish. Worth watching for the acting, and how it all ends."

"Interesting movie. Not sure I liked the ending. Good love story but, the girl in this movie ticked me off a lot. When you have someone like Dean Cain as your lover. DO NOT GO FOR THE BROTHER. Dumb. DO NOT HOLD A GUN WITHOUT GLOVES. Really dumb. DO NOT LIE TO YOUR HUSBAND. Really really dumb. It always comes back to bite you. DO NOT LISTEN TO A SINGLE WORD A KILLER HAS TO SAY. Ingredibly dumb. Especially a killer who has the gun which killed your husband's brother with your fingerprints on it. Could have been better."
