Promising premise, but flatly executed
22 May 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The idea behind this made-for-TV movie - a group of modern day Amazons who scheme in political ways - was a promising one. I think the best way it could have been executed would have to made it slightly tongue-in-cheek, since the idea is a little silly when you think about it. Unfortunately, director Paul Michael Glaser doesn't seem to have found anything funny about the story, because he directs with complete seriousness. The movie is so dry - along with being remarkably slow-moving - that there simply isn't any fun to be found. The movie also frequently comes across as cheap, with shabby production values (whoever lit the interior scenes should have been fired) and with clearly little time given to set up and shoot scenes. There are a few chuckles coming from the depiction of computers, which would have been silly even in 1984, but other than that, "Amazons" is a tough slog.
