A Stretch.....But Still Entertaining & Worth A Look
Here's a film I thought was unfairly criticized by the national critics. Panned by about everyone, I thought this thriller was pretty good.
Yes, there is one major credibility gap in a key segment which I, too was ridiculous. (How can you make love to your neighbor, even in darkness, and not know who it is?!) Also, there is a clichéd ending, but that's not unusual in films.
Overall, however, I thought it was entertaining and nicely filmed. I'd like to see this on a DVD with a better transfer. The main actors - Kevin Kline, Kevin Spacey, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio - were all interesting, especially Spacey's villain character. It was also interesting to E. G. Marshall, who was a big star on television years ago. I'm sorry his role was so short.
The film also had good suspense. All of these are why I think the film is a lot better than it's considered.
