A Low Budget Movie With a Screenplay Full of Flaws, But Supported by a Great Cast and the Sexy Joanna Pacula
2 December 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ben Shorr (Michael Nouri) is a taxi driver full of debts and trying to be a writer. One day, he drives the gorgeous Vanessa (the delicious and sexy Joanna Pacula) home. She is the lover of an imminent senator. Vanessa and her lover have a serious discussion, have a fight and she accidentally kills him. Vanessa is indeed an agent from the government, with a mission of get inside information and compromise the future senator with her agency. Quinn (Michel Ironside), a government killer working for the same agency, is in charge of eliminating her. Vanessa hires Ben, trying to go to Seattle and leave USA through her contacts in that area. This film is not a bad movie, but when I finished watching it, I felt like something was missing in the screenplay. It is a low budget movie, but Joanna Pacula, Michael Nouri and Michael Ironside are great actors and have a good performance. Joanna Pacula is very beautiful, sexy and erotic in her character. Michael Nouri's character is nasty and is not charismatic; therefore it is very difficult for the viewer identify with Ben as the 'hero' of the plot, who will end the story with the Vanessa. And Michael Ironside performs the role he does better, a maniac killer. The plot has many flaws: for example, there are shootings in many places and no police arrives. In many movies, the police arrive instantaneously, but in this one, it seems that there was no money for the complement of the cast. It could be a good movie with some improvement in the screenplay. But anyway, it entertains, and it is worthwhile seeing Joanna Pacula in some sexy scenes. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Paixão Assassina" ("Assassin Passion")
