Dreadful
12 April 2000 | by (In shame (2005 update)) – See all my reviews

Somehow I doubt anyone will ever be reading this, as 'The Witness' (it's known by that up here in Canada) was thrown together in a couple days, for a couple dollars, then shipped off to any video store stupid enough to buy a bad Canadian action flick starring John Heard.

It's not even an action film. The box cover, with all it's flashy explosions and streamlined type, suggests an R rated 'Night of the Running Man' like non-stop action-packed thrill ride. What it is, though, is a family movie with Heard looking around and saying 'nothing ever escapes me', and when something does, 'Grrrr.... nothing has ever escaped me. I must get back at them'.

At the beginning it looks as if it could change into a watchable, normal movie, Heard looks as though he is perfectly cast. He looks a bit like a hit man and he easily could play one, but here the character is poorly written and comes across as more of Disney character than anything else. His idea of torturing is victims is to feed them caviar, then deny them water afterwards, or to wave a dull knife in front of them and ask questions. Why Heard accepted this part is unknown, as Gregor is likely the most idiotic character I've ever seen.

So please, please follow my advice and don't watch this movie, instead do something more enjoyable, like doing taxes or sorting receipts. Even if you are a Heard fan, avoid this one, as all he does is make a complete and total fool of himself.
