two good leads in weak movie
3 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Charlene Andrews (Monica Carrico) is a masseuse among other things. She falls for seventeen year old Danny Hicks (Eric Stoltz). He's convicted of killing his father and sentence to death. She becomes his pen pal as he reminds her of a boy she used to know. He manages to escape and shows up at her doorstep. She has been harassed by corrupt cop Tom Bond (Richard Bradford). There's a struggle when he shows up and Bond is killed. Hicks is heading for family in Arizona and the couple is followed by a vengeful investigator.

There are some weak stuff here. The writing is poor and there is an overall low quality about almost everything. The escape from the police is weak. Charlene and Tom Bond should be scary but it gets too silly. The saving graces are the two leads, Monica Carrico and Eric Stoltz. Stoltz would go on to bigger better things. Carrico is a relative unknown but she has real charisma. Writer/director Mark Griffiths never rose too high for a reason. This is more like a TV-movie thriller.
