Trivia

The official trailer for the film contained prominent scenes and dialogue that were removed before it was released in theaters. Among these excised items: Wesley Snipes' detective arrives at the White House via a helicopter at night; he then says the crime occurred "at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue--an address that changes all the rules"; and Daniel Benzali's Secret Service Director tells Snipes "You were born to become a chalk outline". The former scenes were cut when the filmmakers decided they were too over-the-top (not to mention, in the helicopter-arrival case, something that would never be remotely possible in real life). The scene between Snipes and Benzali was removed because it wrongly made Benzali look like an evil character and a major villain, when the film's storyline makes it clear he is an honest agent who is opposed to Snipes' presence because he feels it undercuts the Secret Service's job of solving the murder mystery.

Goofs

Halfway through the investigation, we are told that the murder victim's date book has a forged entry about meeting with a "tell-all" publisher. A police detective would have verified the appointment with the publisher and its topic long before the forgery was revealed, saving days' time in the investigation. See more »

Adequate thriller
16 September 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

MURDER AT 1600 came near the end of Wesley Snipes' theatrical career, before he went STV, and it is a decent-enough, Canadian-lensed thriller about the discovery of a young woman's brutally murdered body in the White House. Could the president's bully of a son (Tate Donovan) have killed her? Or are there more sinister forces at work here? For better or worse, the identity of the killer is made plain just past the halfway mark. But that doesn't mean you can't go along for the ride as shadowy assassins try to keep Snipes, as a D.C. detective, and Diane Lane, as a sympathetic Secret Service agent, from uncovering the truth. Snipes is in tip top shape here and is surrounded by several great character actors: Ronny Cox as the president, Harris Yulin as a hawkish general and Alan Alda as a presidential adviser. Daniel Benzali, who some of you might remember from a short-lived TV crime show some years ago, is on hand as a senior Secret Service agent and Dennis Miller has a small role as a fellow D.C. detective. While MURDER AT 1600 is not a first-rate action film -- for one thing, it is chock full of tired plot devices -- it is certainly watchable. And it beats anything Snipes has done since going STV.
