I agree -- this movie is awful
10 August 2003 | by (Sherman Oaks, California) – See all my reviews

Having just endured the DVD of this movie this afternoon, I agree that it's pretty much crap in every facet. The script, direction, and cinematography are all amateur at best. But where I would give some credit is to a couple of the actors. While I thought Richard Chamberlain and James Duval were awful, I thought Michael Imperioli showed geniune screen presence and talent at times, and it is easy to see why he has gone on to bigger and better things including his mega-role on The Sopranos. I also was surprised that Ute Lemper was as effective as she was. Well, at least she wasn't embarrassing, as was most of the rest of the cast.

I'm not surprised the director chose to go take Allen Smithee route on this one -- Merendino has done better work. "Livers Ain't Cheap" anyone?
