Movie Reviews

Gershon's best since �Bound�!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's been a long time since ?Bound?, and a long time since Gina Gershon lived up to the potential she showed in that amazing film. Well ?Borderline? may not be in quite the same class, but it is a smartly written and directed little film with a great central performance by Gershon. She's darkly sexy and enigmatic, but she's also very credible as a mom screwed over by the system. The film has lots of style, good music, and an ending that makes you rethink the whole movie. An entertaining and sexy thriller."

"Gina Gershon is my favorite,modern day actress,who is to often given inferior scripts and roles where she usually is cast as a gorgeous, sexy,and (often dangerous)lady.While I certainly don't mind GINA "strutting her stuff",I do wish Hollywood would give her better roles.In "Lies and Whispers" she is smart,touching,and sexy,an oustanding performance,I wish she would be given more multi-dimensional roles.I think she would be GREAT in comedy,which when given the opportunity she delivers tart lines in the best Joan Blondell-Ann Sheridan tradition.

In "Boderline" she is a loving mother of two girls, but is caught in a nasty custody battle with ex-husband,and she has recurring nightmares,from her childhood,which has left her with terrible mental scars.When here ex-husband and his girlfriend are brutally murdered GINA is the number one (1) suspect and put under more mental pressure.GINAs' performance is what raises this film to a 4-star level.She handles her role with tenderness, warmth,and just the right amout of mental anguish.Please, Hollywood do justice to GINAs' talents and give her the roles she (and her fans) deserve.

The supporting cast includes Sean Patrick Flannery,Michael Biehn,and from the original "DAMN YANKEES",Rea Allen,as a symphatic friend of Ginas'is fine."

"I am a BIG fan of Michael Biehn, since I first saw him in "Teminator." Ever since then I look forward to any movie or tv series he is in. for "Borderline" this is not a great movie. It drags,it is not well written, and some of it...well.....just does not work for me. But...I am adding a star because they(the Producers, etc) had the good brains to have Michael Biehn in it. But his talents are wasted in this part. Not enough of him in the movie to save it, really. I am not a big Gina Gershon fan. I think she needs lots more acting lessons. I get tired of her "pout" and she uses it alot in this movie. As for Sean Patrick Flanery....he needs more acting lessons too. But I cannot fault him too much as his part was not well written at all. Never defined. As a matter of fact, none of the characters are well defined in this movie. You have to guess as to their motives, etc. But I do give it 3 stars and do mildly recommend it and if you are a Michael Biehn fan, like me, then I do recommend your seeing it as one of his latest endeavors. He is getting older....55 plus now, and good parts are hard to find for him.. sad to say. See him in TV Series..."The Magnificent Seven" and you will not be sorry. That is one of the Very Best TV shows I have ever had on DVD. I have both seasons. Sorry they did not make a third or forth as it was Everything that "Borderline" is not. Well written, Well Acted...and Very memorable, even if you are not a western fan. And an added plus...Dale Midkiff. Another underated actor who deserves better movie parts. But did find this TV series, thank goodness."
