Not bad, but very average late-night thriller
9 July 2002 | by (Berkshire, England) – See all my reviews

A reformed convict (Ron Marquette), is now on parole, working at a local bar, and living happily with his girlfriend (Dedee Pfeiffer), until classy ex-girlfriend (Carol Alt) reappears on the scene and manipulates him into becoming involved with a murder, as she, in turn, is being black-mailed over a previous killing.

It's hard to really find much to say about this movie. There's nothing outstandingly good, but there's nothing outstandingly bad either. The leads are reasonable in their roles, and the plot is watchable, but has a very routine, "done before" feel to it.

It's all very 1990s - beautiful looking people, with lots of art deco and sun-touched soft shots. I found the compulsory sex scenes to be dragged out and actually rather slow the story up. The three leads are fair in their parts (with Michelle Pfeiffer's sister Dedee coming off best, being actually rather lovely in her part!), but it's possible to feel that more could have been done with the characters and more depth given to them, particularly with Marquette's reformed criminal being framed from murder.

It's the sort of film that is very average, but after you've watched the first half an hour or so, you find yourself having to watch the rest of it just for the sake of it.

Bottom line: a fair TV movie in it's own way, but similar plots have been done, much better, by numerous other TV movies both before and since.
