confusing
18 June 2001 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie was a confusing one, and I found myself struggling to comprehend it. From what I could gather, a man receives photos of his wife in rather suggestive poses and hires a cop (who turns out to be crooked) to investigate. Ordinarily, I like Bruno Lawrence films, but this one just didn't cut it.

** 1/2 out of ****
