Bad, bad, and just plain bad
30 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time. The actors sleep walk through their roles, the romance that is suppose to be obsessive and all consuming is never believable. The chemistry between the actors was non existent. My cat could have done a better acting job playing all the characters. There was really no point to this movie other than to show what Peter Weller looks like without his robo cop uniform on. The romantic scenes were flat. Never once do you believe that these 2 characters are even remotely interested in each other. I thought Jane Seymour could have done so much with this role, but didn't. Her acting was beyond flat. The direction was very reigned in. If you are going to make a movie about an obsessive love, the emotions need to run the gamut, not robotic (maybe Peter Weller got his characters mixed up?)
