A so-so movie saved by Sabato's killer good looks!
5 May 2004 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

Filmed in 1998 for television, this is a B picture version of DeCaprio's CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. Written by Peter McCabe and directed by Sheldon Larry, they had the good sense to cast Antonio Sabato Jr. in the leading role. Don't know why this actor doesn't get more grade A films. Every scene he's in, you can't take your eyes off of him. He charms his way in and out of every relationship he can, from straight to gay, to get ahead. In supporting roles, Brad Dourif, as his partner in crime, turns in a fine acting performance, along with David Keith (stellar in OFFICER & GENTLEMAN) who does what he can in a one dimensional role as the detective out to get his man. I tuned onto this film by mistake and couldn't turn the TV set off, because of Sabato. He's gorgeous!
