I really liked this movies plot. Edge of your seat thriller. Not meant for anyone under age, language, sex and violence.

Surprisingly Good.

"I was truly surprised at what a good movie "Motives"
turned out to be. To be honest, when I
rented this film, I expected to find yet
another tactless, corny tale of urban extremes.
But what a surprise!

I would recommend "Motives" to anyone. This is
an engaging movie that you actually don't mind
sitting through from start to finish. Of course
there is a bevy of beautiful people and heated
sensuality, but the acting is no disappointment
Moore does great and Fox delivers another
convincing portrayal of a jilted woman
(but this time without going over the
top.....well, not so much).

I believe this is a movie that you
wouldn't mind seeing more than once.
Great suspense and attractive actors
certainly help.

This is a great movie for those searching
for a nice thriller to add to their
movie collection."
"Motives" was AWESOME!!!!!

"THIS IS A MUST SEE MOVIE!I went to pick a movie at the video store, and I picked up Motives. This movie should have been at the theatres, it was awesome, the characters were believable, and the storyline was magnificent. This movie would have sold out if it were at the theatre. Shemar Moore and Vivica A. Fox, played there roles perfectly. The way the movie ended will be mind boggling. I was so impressed by this movie, that I just ordered this movie to add to my video/dvd library at home. I e-mailed all of my friends, and told them, that they have to rent/order this movie. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED, THAT I CAN GUARANTEE!!!!"

"I cringed, I cringed, I cringed at the weak and disjointed storyline, the bad acting and the bad costume & make-up (for the women especially). Admittedly, my expectations were high due to recommendations, as well as the fact that Vivica Fox (2 Can Play That Game, Soul Food) Co-Produced the movie.

The story could have been so much better if it wasn't so patchy in key areas i.e. the drama in the "opening scene" - which unfortunately didn't follow through in the main story, and the fact that there was no real depth or background to any of the key characters.

There is a host of talent in this film, which again was unfortunately wasted. Sean Blakemore's "love/Hate" relationship with Shemar Moore - could have been explored in greater detail. The "stars" of the movie Vivica Fox and Golden Brooks came across unconvincingly and reminded me of "Sunset Beach" extra's (i.e. watch the scene when Golden Brooks breaks down in front of Shemar Moore). The worst acting came from "Ren n Stimpy" the detectives (Victoria Rowell and Mel Jackson) who were vital to the plot, but whose roles weren't taken seriously enough. However to end on a positive note, the best acting came from supporting cast member Joe Torry, who helped convince me that this was not a comedy. I would have liked to see more of Keisha Knight Pulliam (Cosby Show).
