Better than average spy flick
17 November 2001 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure why so many IMDb voters chose to give Provocateur a '1'. The film is well acted (especially by lead Jane March and Nick Mancuso as a justifiably paranoid CIA agent), takes itself seriously, engages in a minimum of silly action movie cliches, and has an incredibly downbeat ending that is almost believable. Sure there's some unnecessary softcore T & A, but even that is relatively tasteful. Worth a look if you like spy flicks.
