Madchen Amick does a good job, but she doesn't give her heart away easily...
Madchen Amick does an admirable job in this B late night movie. The plot is standard and predictable for this type of 90s mild thriller. The movie is reminiscent of The Giver and all other stolen organ, and organ transplant themed movies. Madchen is a bit prying at times in this movie, almost reversing her role as the movie's victim by circumstance. Although she never comes anywhere close to being two-faced as she was in Dreamlover. Personality change and duality is explored here, as well as personality change via body part change. At times it seems like a Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde set-up but it always lets in down and returns to the base line. The movie is not well scripted for major or unpredicted twists and turns, and has very few characters involved in the mystery aspect of it. In other words, the surprises aren't that surprising. Overall it has decent acting and a thinly veiled thriller plot which is not too bad for a made for TV movie. Just remember that the wine and the inviting acting of Madchen Amick may just be enough to keep you heartless.
