Just Watched It and It's Forgotten
17 December 2002 | by (Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

With a title like `Deadly Intent,' I wasn't expecting a blockbuster extravaganza. Actually, I was just expecting what I got: a forgettable little thriller with some good names in the cast, like Steve Railsback, Maud Adams, Fred Williamson, David Dukes, and the man himself: Lance Henrikson. But I wasn't expecting it to be this forgettable and little.

We begin the movie with two guys running through a jungle, one of them carrying a statue. He trips and the other one (Henrikson) beats him up and takes a huge diamond from the statue. It turns out that they were a part of a group of men exploring the jungle for a museum owner (Adams). Henrikson returns to the States but has hidden the diamond somewhere. After a mysterious man runs his car off the road and kills him, his wife (Lisa Eilbacher) is hounded by numerous shady characters that think she has the diamond. And that, my friends, is all there is to the plot. It is just an hour and a half of people breaking into Eilbacher's home, searching, sometimes killing each other. This cast is really wasted, particularly Williamson, who has next to nothing to do or say despite being fourth billed. There are also few thrills. I could not figure out why this was rated R. One cuss word and a few people tamely killed is all that is objectionable. Well, other than the plot's forgettable-ness. I guarantee you that you will forget every last bit of this movie when you wake up the next morning. Which is why I am writing this brief review now. It's almost bedtime and I have nearly forgotten the whole movie. Zantara's score: 5 out of 10.
