Movie Reviews

SUSPEND DISBELIEF, THEN PERHAPS TOLERATE
Shashank Tripathi | Gadabout | 03/31/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Good production values, a superb soundtrack and some good suspense shots can all still not make up for a doozy plot. If you don't mind not having to question its theme, the movie is interesting and will keep you guessing. But there are holes big as Gouda in the plot -- stuff like assassins leaving guns with fingerprints behind, people remembering things in a country they've never been in before, people being doctored...oh well, rent it and enjoy some neighborhood-garage type film making. The DVD tells me this was made for TV, so perhaps such a puerile level of oversight is forgiveable, but one wonders how much Baldwin's knees must have heart bending to these lows."
MISTY WATER COLORED MEMORIES
Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 05/06/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"SECOND NATURE examines the intrinsic nature of the human psyche: can a cold blooded killer be reformed and change his killing ways? Alec Baldwin turns in a rather stiff performance as a man who wakes up from a coma after a plane crash that killed his wife and two daughters. He is in England, in the care of lovely psychiatrist Louise Lombard. As pieces of his memories come back, Baldwin starts to wonder just who he was and who he is, and what is his connection with shady Powers Boothe (a rather dull and wooden performance here too). By the time it reaches its revelations at the end, there are so many inconsistencies and implausibilities, SECOND NATURE just can't repair the damage done. A mediocre film at best."
A decent TV movie
BernardZ | Melbourne, vic Australia | 08/29/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I have seen a very similar story on Babylon V and I think its a non SF copy. The story itself is of a prisioner who is rehabilitated using a mind control method. However others have a different agenda and attempt to turn him into an assassin. It had enough twists and turns to make it interesting.

The acting was fair. Certainly Alec Baldwin can do much better.

Overall it was quite viewable. Probably worth a look."
