Movie Reviews

Not What You'd Expect.
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Judging from the cover, and Shannon Tweed's name above the title, this is another one of those mediocre, straight to video "Erotic Thrillers." Granted, there's a time and a place for those movies (specifically Cinemax at 3 a.m.) But "Cold Sweat" is miles ahead of its competition. Ben Cross is a hit man who is haunted by the ghost of an innocent victim. At the same time, he tries to balance family life, with a wife and kids, and the extreme violence his job requires. Enter Dave Thomas, a vicious little man who wants his wife, Shannon Tweed, offed. A whole plethora of complications follow, none of which you ever honestly expect. Granted, the film is still low budget, and the production values hurt the quality. But the witty script and expert direction, and most of all, the acting make up for that. Ben Cross is an engaging leading man, a solid actor who really makes you believe he's haunted by demons. It's a real shame that his career took such a nose dive after "Chariots of Fire." Dave Thomas is given a chance to create a fully dimensional character, and prove that he's also an underrated actor. Certainly, he never got that chance on "Grace Under Fire." You'll have to hate him, but you'll never be bored by watching him. The biggest suprise is Shannon Tweed, who proves in this movie that she can actually act. She steals the last scene of the film. Her fans won't be disspointed, eithier. She looks great, and has her own share of erotic moments, check out the growing lotion scene. And finally, the film has a well used "theme song," "Too Much Pride," by Chris Rea. It's used five or six times in the movie, yet I never tired of hearing it. It perfectly describes the "worn out" mindset of the charcters. All in all, there is some superior trashy entertainment for another lonely Saturday night, solid entertainment."
