THE TWIST SAVES THE FILM
21 May 2001 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

As much as I Like both Burr and Lansbury, I do not like this movie. The only thing that saves this movie, a little bit, is the unique and rarely seen in other movies, plot twist. Once Burr's character realizes that Lansbury's character used him to get acquitted of murder he creates a situation that forces Lansbury's character to kill him, which is his intent all along. I have never seen this type of plot done in another movie and while it is intriguing and the actors do their parts well, The acting doesn't save this movie. It drags and the dragging takes away from the enjoyment.

It is a watchable movie, not the worst I have ever seen on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best, I would rate it a 4.
