Storyline

When a married man is found murdered, and his girlfriend is missing, the police suspect the wife of the murdered man. The wife turns to a professor at college who is a medically disabled ex-cop to help clear her. Not wanting the job at first, he eventually does begin to investigate the crime while fighting the demons and the pain of his own life. The clues are scarce, but one clue is that the man was murdered with an unusual weapon - a musket. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Tired and tiresome mystery flick.
16 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

"An Occasional Hell" is a low point in Tom Berenger's career. His acting in this picture is so lifeless that when people refuse to tell him what they know about the case he's investigating, he looks as if he's about to say "Fine, what do I care anyway?". The script is so slow-moving that at times it doesn't seem to be moving at all, and the direction is so pedestrian that, without the brief flashes of nudity, this could easily pass off as a TV movie. Apparently everyone associated with this movie was just too tired to even try making something good out of it. Everyone, that is, except Kari Wuhrer, who is incredibly sexy as always, and gives the film its only spark; sadly, her role is all-too-brief. (*1/2)
