Take your pick of story endings
4 August 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This movie had lots of promise as a potentially good to even great mystery; but, it got lost in how it wanted to end.

Was the main suspect the killer or a blackmailer or innocent? Was the assistant head prosecutor a killer or accessory or just an overly ambitious attorney trying to protect her name and future? At the end of this movie you can fill in your answer to the above questions because they are still open and unresolved at this end of this movie.

Some good performances by the photographer, the defense attorney, the pimp and even the prosecutor's people are all wasted on the bumbling, and fumbling ending to this movie.
