Thriller with some bile, some sex, and a surprise ending.

Author: johnbernardbooks (johnbooks@e-velocity.net) from Ontario, Canada
26 August 2001

Tim Matheson is a charmless actor, and a bit long in the tooth to embody a football hero. The object of his affections, Mimi Craven as Allison Miller, has a boney profile and fails to be a great siren. Their sex scenes prove inert, but the fight scenes show some heat. In a secondary yet colorful role, Garvin Cross plays one of the most feckless and effeminate private eyes in the history of film. Matheson as Tyler Grey knows trouble in this movie...even before it begins since his wife divorced him for another woman, and his weakness for alcohol and drugs, though he refuses to smoke tobacco, placed him in rehab about as often as on the football field. Then the movie progresses, murder rears its ugly head, and his problems deepen. Stephen Mendel portrays a homicide detective with a minor gift for rhyme and a major gift for rancor, most of it aimed at Tyler. The movie ends with a not totally predictable surprise.

Cool suspense thriller that was much better then I thought it would be. I was looking for something new to watch and I came across this movie on cable. I wasn't expecting much, but it was really entertaining. Well written with a bunch of unexpected events, I would recommend this movie highly.

Body Heat meets The Last Seduction

10/10

This is a cool movie with a hell of an ending. The female lead Mimi Craven is awful. Obviously someone gave a job to his girlfriend. And Tim Matheson, who is a good actor, seems a bit too old for the part. But even with that baggage there are a bunch of unexpected twists and turns. It was fun to watch and if the lead actress wasn't emotion-deficient, it would be a damn sexy movie. Maybe they'll remake it one day. This is a movie that deserves a second chance.
