This movie is brutal,disturbing, and certain scenes almost completely unwatchable. As television movies go, many are bad and most are not as good as motion pictures but this was a movie that really left a bad taste in my mouth. I hope it wasn't based on a true story, though I do not remember seeing that it was(they usually say). If it wasn't-what was the point of the movie? It was so unnecessarily brutal and drainingly hard to watch to the point where you're exhausted by the end of the movie.
While the ending was good "payback" the villainess in this, was so repulsive, nothing in the world could have been enough. At least, in many movies like this, there's some intrigue to go along with the bitterness but in this I saw nothing. The villainess was so disgusting it gave you a headache just to watch her for more then five minutes(for some reason I did watch the whole thing) and by the end your so thankful the movie's over you want to hug the television set.
In other words-not good. I love Rena Sofer though(she can get better scripts) and Linda Evans is always fun to watch. Too much violence though and not ENOUGH payback at the end especially with the ambiguous last 30 seconds. Just another bad TV movie.
