Damian Harris asked Ellen Barkin' to portray her character three different ways: 1) Palmer knew she was attracted to Vickie, 2) Palmer wasn't attracted to Vickie, and 3) Palmer wasn't sure if she was attracted to Vickie. Harris would then edit the takes together, giving the audience an unsure vibe of what Detective Palmer thought of Vickie. See more »

"Mercy" sounds kinda like your average scary cop thriller mixed with "8MM." But with great acting by Ellen Barkin and Peta Wilson, it's soon noticeable that it's much better. The camera work and original score were also quite enjoyable. But maybe the best thing about this film, it's good! There is a plot. Unlike many other films of it's type, "Mercy" has a plot and sticks with. It keeps you guessing and wondering, but doesn't lose your interest. And while the basis of the movie is very sexual, the film itself isn't that bad. I mean, if it's unnecessary, you probably won't see too much of it. So give it a chance, cuz it's a 9 out of 10 in my book.
