Movie Reviews

Forget about it!

"I'm a devoted fan of beautiful Maryam D'Abo but this bomb is truly awful. There's no dead guy at the White House, no helicopters flying around, no suspense, no believable premise, no coherent plot, no script at all and, needless to say, no need for you to spend your dough on this cr@p....unless you are a true devoted fan of Maryam D'Abo. GOD, I NEED HELP!"
Don't get your hopes up

"I took a chance on this because I enjoy Jayne Heitmeyer in Earth: Final Conflict. She, Robert Vaughn, and Maryam D'Abo all do credible jobs acting in this movie, but their acting and some gorgeous outdoor shots are not enough to save it. (Note that Corbin Bernsen as the main character did not make the "credible acting" list--I haven't seen one man hit himself about the face and head so much since the Three Stooges, but I digress.)The story is set in Boston. You can tell this if you watch closely because there's a half-hidden Boston Police patch and one Massachusetts license plate. Otherwise, it seems pretty clear that everything takes place in Canada. No offense to our friends to the North, but the film comes off as, well, Canadian--which is to say that several scenes are reminiscent of a "Kids in the Hall" episode, only not funny.For a film described as a sexual thriller, there is a startling lack of thrill or sexuality--no nudity except for a brief and obvious glimpse of a body double. I'm not sure how it earned its "R" rating. Interestingly, the DVD box shows a helicopter and the White House (?) but I don't recall seeing a chopper or *any* American building in the entire movie.To sum up, a weak story, bad acting except the three aforementioned, and questionable direction make this a sophomoric attempt at a film. I can't recommend it unless you're a *really* big Jayne Heitmeyer fan."
Waste of time and money.

"We rented this movie, it was horrible. The best part of the movie was the ending. Too bad Corbin Bernsen continues to be like Arnie Becker on LA Law, a cheap,lying man with only one thing on his mind only in this movie there is no side of him with a conscience. There was no plot and the acting was awful. Don't waste your time or money."
Waste of 100 minutes

"Wow. Hard to find words to describe this movie. Wow. It was bad. Off the wall plot. Just a little bit far-fetched. The camera man forgot to come in when they filmed this. Seems like they threw up a camera and hoped to catch as much of the movie as possible. Everyone else was grasping but not touching anything, except for eachother. I have to say though, it was bad enough to laugh about."
