Storyline

A writer witnesses a murder that may have been politically motivated involving Argentinian Nationals. After picking the man out of a line-up and persuasively testifying in court against him, the man is convicted. However, his girlfriend shows up and says the man is innocent and produces a picture of a young child which she says will be without a father. This leaves the writer with doubts and then when he sees another man who looks very much like the killer, he becomes more certain that he made a mistake. However, everything is not as it appears and the writer finds himself drawn into the murder and blackmail. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

wasted potential
25 April 2001 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

A writer witnesses a murder and helps put away the culprit. Days later, he bumps into the man's exact double, and starts to think he made a mistake. Before too long, he finds himself tangled up in a complicated conspiracy where nothing is as it seems.

This had the potential to be a good movie, but it deteriorates into predictability and too much confusion. Better acting could have helped, too.

** out of ****
