Sub-standard film noir attempt.
3 December 2003 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

This film seems to be an attempt to write a screenplay that copies the feel of Touch of Evil. But it has insufficient acting, writing, directing and technical skills devoted to it. What results is a poor film-noir knock off. Particularly irritating are its lighting and sound track. Fill lighting is provided by bounce cards which are unsteadily held and too small to cover the subjects. The sound is both muddy and distant.
