Standard TVM, great twist - spoilt by poor, rushed ending
4 December 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sarah is going through her divorce where she has won custody of her son, 2 houses, half a business and a million cash. She is the target of an attempted murder and taken into protective custody of the FBI and she discovers her ex-husband is a leading mobster and her testimony is needed to put him on trial. With her life more in danger than ever she, her son Sam and FBI Agent Kevin Nicholas.

This starts as a pretty standard "woman in peril" TV movie and really stays that way for most of it. The film doesn't have that much excitement and just moves from one location to another with the main strand of the film being the romance between Sarah (Rosanna Arquette) and Kevin (Scott Bakula).

The performances are standard at best. Arquette is quite good as the woman in danger, but some scenes are just terrible - in the first five minutes alone she "plays" piano with her son as they both nod to different beats without seeming to move their arms sideways. Bakula is far too rigid as the FBI agent making it difficult to like his character and it makes the later romance with Arquette seem really unlikely. The standout performance is Max Pomeranc as the child Sam. He was brilliant in Innocent Moves and was good here too, but even he has very little to do.

20 minutes from the end there is a really good twist - I honestly didn't see it coming. And it is devastating - even more so because you don't expect something clever in a film of this standard. Unfortunately, rather than end the film on a bombshell that would have been a great (albeit sad) ending, the film stretches it out for another 20 minutes to get to a very lazy, convenient "happy" ending. This really blows it for me and I would much rather have seen the film end on a really clever twist.

Overall this is a pretty dull TVM. The thriller doesn't work and the romance is unconvincing. The twist is really good but bottles it and gives the TV audience what it wants - a happy ending that doesn't stretch your brain at all.
