It tries, but overall way too long and tedious (4-10)
6 February 2002 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

Taylor plays a United Nations bio-warfare disarmament expert who's lonely wife (Anderson) has a steamy affair while she's away in France. But soon she finds out the hard way that her lover is not quite the charming and stable guy she thought he was, and starts to fear him and wonder about his true motives. Unfortunately this movie aimlessly plods along for about two-thirds of its running time, which is only livened up by an occasional amazingly explicit sex scene, before picking up steam in the final 20 minutes or so. Despite its rental sleeve artwork and the tagline "More potent than "The Andromedia Strain"" this movie is as much of a Sci-Fi/thriller as "Regarding Henry", and is more of a mystery-drama than anything else. 4 out of 10, not without its moments but still it just drags on way too long to hold your attention.
