Simply a Gorgeous Jewel! ;-)
21 October 2003 | by (NL/N-H/HHW) – See all my reviews

First its a very sexy & charming remake of The Long Hot Summer'85. I was pleasant surprised! The movie is a typical Long Hot Summer'80 remake. Don Johnson and Jason Robards luckily carry the whole movie as thé main characters. Playing each other. DJ has a way with consuming & working the camera like Paul N. using every aspect... Its wonderful to see him strong, slick, humorous and vulnerable at the same time. ;-) Only the story could have more depth and maybe a bit longer. So they could have worked out the caracters more. OH well (even) for (not) DJ fans i garantee ITS A SIGHT FOR YOUR EYES!

Perfect for a Long Hot Summer evening girls. As for the guys...don't get too serious about The Long Hot Summer. Its an enjoyable piece, you should watch with your girl...
