"I picked "Malevolent" because Kari Wuhrer was in it. She is not only beautiful but a good actress. Lou Diamond Phillips pulled off a great performance as detective Jack Lucas trying to clear his name. The real star of the movie is Edooardo Ballerini who was the scary heavy in this film.As you watch this movie you soon can figure out what will happen next. Not a bad thing, but at times its just too obvious thus making the scenes not as much impact as they would. Pretty much you seen all this stuff before. But still everything was good. For a "straight to video" movie they really went all out for production of the car chase scenes which looked great."
I was expecting Jack Bauer to pop out any minute

"Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba, The Big Hit) stars in this forgettable thriller about Detective Jack Lucas who is on a case of a killer. The killer Oliver Chadwicke played by the awesome Edoardo Ballerini (Dinner Rush, The Pest) is also obsessed over a stripper named Jessica played by the miscast but still beautiful Kari Wuhrer (Sliders, General Hospital). Oliver also is very smart but has a shaky past. Jack figures out that the killer might be setting him up to make it look like he is the killer. He finds out who he is and his history etc etc. Nothing much here except a very sexy looking Kari Wuhrer. Formulaic plot involving Cop vs. Bad Guy and the Bad Guy is tryin to fram the Cop. Phillips & Ballerini are the only two that hold the film together. Also starring Gwen McGee (Coach Carter, Mercury Rising), Jack McGee (Breakdown, Rescue Me), Iva Hasperger (Exorcism, Vlad) and Carmen Argenziano (Starate SG-1, Identity)"
