Dumb!
16 February 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Sirens" is all about Delany as is a top corporate exec who sets out to get the cop who shot her ex-husband to death during a routine street incident. The film's premise has merit and even the story has potential. However, the execution is an abomination with huge, gaping plot holes at every juncture. Young asks us to swallow huge portions of nonsense as we see everything from police procedure to human nature malformed to fit an awkward, unbelievable, and amateurish screenplay poorly concealed by a thin varnish of trite Hollywoodistics. From its dumb title to its lame conclusion where small talk is interjected between credits, "Sirens" is a good film to miss. (D+)
