An Excellent Movie!
13 June 2002 | by (The Wild Wild West) – See all my reviews

Melissa Gilbert's "Little House" stigma weighs her down a bit in the really romantic scenes, but otherwise she does well with the role of Marian Winslow. It is Joe Penny's outstanding performance that delivers the character of attorney Edward Moran as a complex, loving, and torn man who is forced to live two lives. And it is that performance that makes him a 'bad guy' it is impossible to hate. In fact, it is difficult, despite his background, to think of him as a 'bad guy' at all. Joe Penny's performance was also able to carry those few moments where Melissa Gilbert's character was not quite as convincing and create an effective scene.

The script is well done and delivers a twist that the viewers don't expect. The musical scores for the movie are excellent though at some times obnoxiously loud and overshadowing the movie itself. One of the pluses of the movie is it doesn't follow the traditional mafia storyline and takes a totally different approach. But for those who like action, there is a shoot 'em up later in the movie.

I rate this memorable movie with top honors.
