Suspense with style ..........
20 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Niagara Falls locations are used to great advantage in "Liars Edge", a mystery thriller that exhibits plenty of suspense with style. The presence of Christopher Plummer initially attracted me to this movie. Regrettably he plays only a small part as a police detective. I was not disappointed with the film overall, because it has good character development, and is not very predictable. Quite a bit is left unexplained relating to a certain stash of cash however. Nicholas Shields is convincing as the suicidal son dealing with his fathers death after dad attempts going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. David Kieth and Joseph Bottoms are menacing brothers who move in with Shields mom, Shannon Tweed. Creepy elements like doll heads in a fish tank, and a puppet molestation, add a certain edginess to the film that pervades throughout. - MERK
