Storyline

Jason is a small-time criminal and con artist. His misdemeanours range from petty scams to outright robberies. He is also manipulative and domineering. But his girlfriend Cheryl is so desperate to become a recognized artist that she willingly assists in his rackets. The big carrot that Jason dangles in front of her is a gallery showing of her art. One evening, while fleeing the scene of a variety store robbery, Cheryl mistakenly thinks she has slammed the getaway car into Donald, a drunken philosopher. Cheryl thinks she's almost killed him, but Donald, who has a penchant for inept suicide attempts, believes she has saved his life and could be his guardian angel. Their lives become inextricably linked. Written by Anonymous

One of the worst "action" films I've ever seen
7 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The storyline could have been OK had the dialogues been written better. Unfortunately, that alone would not have saved the film, since in order to enjoy the viewing experience, one must care about the characters, and that was not the case here, since none of the major characters were engaging enough on their own, and had absolutely no chemistry between them.

Megan Follows's acting range is very narrow and her face (with the exception of her 'famous smile') is virtually expressionless. She does not seem to have evolved at all since her stardom on Ann of Green Gables. James Gallanders' appeared to think he was on a theatre stage and heroically overacted throughout most of his scenes while sounding as though he was reading his script for the first time. James Woolvett's performance, though at best mediocre, was at least believable in several scenes. I am just glad I was multitasking, and didn't waste my time really focusing on this highly forgettable 'romantic/action' film
