Languid erotic thriller with spurts of violence
8 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

The first half of this "country thriller" (if I may invent a term) is slow and languid, with an atmosphere of eroticism and barely any plot progression. In the second half the pace picks up a little, but there are too many plot contrivances. Stephen Baldwin gives a pretty bad performance here - I don't know if the popularity of the same year's "Forrest Gump" influenced his acting style, but he often makes his character look like a retard. On the other hand, Patsy Kensit and Jennifer Rubin are well-cast; Kensit probably has the edge in sexiness thanks to her British accent! Fans of either of the three main actors will probably enjoy this; if you're not, you might want to keep your distance. (**)
