Solid noirish thriller
31 January 2000 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This mother has what most DTV movies (well, it went straight to video in France, I hope somebody had a chance to see it in a theater) lacks : a real plot. Classic of course, like "Bad Influence" meets "Internal Affairs", but where you always know why the characters are acting the way they do. We basically know how it's going to end, and when the finale comes around, it's savage and cynical enough to hold your attention. The dramatic progression is very well done, a lot of things happens and Zach "Gremlins" Galligan has obviously grown up into a very fine actor indeed. Mario plays mister macho again, but with a twist this time. (For Mario's fans, this one would be a good double-feature along with "Full Eclipse". Underrated Israelian filmmaker Avi Nesher always does a good job, whatever the movie is - foir an elegant horror flick, check "Doppelganger" and for sheer campiness, try "She". His talent could be better exp^loited,
