"You get with Pam Grier and Rutger Hauer in the same movie as heroine and villain & you'd expect something pretty special, right? Wrong. WILDER is a by-the-numbers murder mystery/ thriller which attempts to update Grier's FOXY BROWN/ COFFY persona for the 2Ks. There's one problem: this movie practically talks itself to death.
The plot: Dr Samuel Charney (Hauer) is the prime suspect in a violent murder. The victim is one of his patients who was about to sue him for malpractice. He claims he's innocent. Cop Della Wilder (Grier) is assigned the case, which she presumes to be an open-and-shut revenge killing. But of course, it's more complex than that- it would have to be because this movie drags on for 90 boring minutes and totally wastes the time and talent of the leads- who appear to be sleepwalking through the film. And so will you. Keep your fingers crossed that Director Rodney Gibbons and Writer Terry Abrahamson get blacklisted at some point in the future. Why does poor old Rutger always wind up in direct to video fodder like this? He hasn't been in movie worthy of his talents since 1984's LADYHAWKE. A real shame. And this movie is a real sham. If you must see it, rent it first. You've been warned."
Good RH movie

"Nice story, humor and plenty of twists.The above review was probably written by someone who is expecting Gone With the Wind from every movie he watches,if he does.
For those in US who like RH, this is a good oportunity to please
themselves. Five stars because new RH movie is rare on US market and this one is pretty good."
Wilder is not such a bad movie

"Rutger can come onto the screen & you no you are going to see a wonderful performance. Wilder has a good pliot good actors and the music isn't to bad either. I own this movie and I enjoyed watching this flick. I am a huge Rutger Hauer fan he does not get the credit he really really deserves! Rutger Hauer and Pam Grier are very good together in this movie they have a very good chemistry together. They bounce off one another brilliantly. It's a thriller/mystery with some romance and some very touching moments that Rutger does so well because he is such a good actor. If you are a Rutger Hauer & Pam Grier fan I suggest that you get this movie."
