hard-boiled erotic crime thriller lacks tension
6 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Reno Adams (Eric Roberts) escapes from prison with his cellmate Billy Quayle (Richard Edson). He's tracking down his wife Lauren (Mädchen Amick) who set him up to go to prison for 7 years. She is now married to successful banker Paul Harrington (John Lithgow). Paul doesn't know of her past and Reno claims to be her brother. Meanwhile Paul discovers money laundering in his bank. Reno steals Paul's safe and Lauren blames it on kids.

This is trying hard to be a hard-boiled erotic crime thriller. The problem is that writer/director William Curran doesn't have the skills to pull it off. It's like he watched too many old movies and decided to put every cliché into this movie. There is no rooting interest in any of the characters. The movie doesn't take a break from the style. The production looks like a late night TV movie. The best thing is the great cast of actors. They put the material to work but the movie just lacks tension.
