Your usual tv movie thriller
11 August 2000 | by (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie for the second time on a local tv station. The first time I had seen it was on it's original tv broadcast on NBC back in 1996.

The movie seems to move a bit slowly and isn't very entertaining. The only reason I watched it again was that I'm a huge Brian Austin Green fan. In this film you can see him styling short blonde hair and wearing a leather jacket with blue jeans and a pair of boots. Looks sort of like a biker. Looked very different from how he looked on 90210.

He plays a devios graduate student who falls for one of his teachers. They have a romance which he considers to be something serious, but for her it's only a fling. Afterwards things turn ugly fast. Brian plays a good villain, but the film ends up being flat.
