A calamity of a movie...
23 September 2001 | by (Nicosia, Cyprus) – See all my reviews

Its hard to believe that Michael Madsen could swoop so low and make such a calamity of a movie. Didn't he pick up any tips from Tarantino during Reservoir Dogs..tut, tut, tut

First of all, the car chase at the beginning of the movie is from Basic Instinct (literally...except the inside the car shots...that for me was pretty pathetic)

As the film evolves, however, it just get worse. A poor script, bad acting and sloppy, unattractive directing is a basic summary of this movie. The music of the film is also pity-full.

Oh, by the way, the story is about this cop (Madsen) on pursuit of a killer. His partner gets killed and the killer wriggles his way into the cop's girlfriend's life. The film has a dark secret which is supposed to keep you "glued" to the screen...

My advice is don't make the same mistake I did and watch it...Just think about all the other things I could have done instead ...like make a salad or wash my dog...
