The Return of Seymour Cassel!
15 February 2001 | by (San Jose, California) – See all my reviews

I recently caught a sneek (distributor only) peek of this interesting indy flick and I was quite suprized at what I saw!

In a glorious return leading man territory, Academy Award nominee (Faces) Seymour Cassel turns out a great performance in this film. As the older, yet wiser retired hitman, Cassel shines in this story of murder, mystery, revenge, and double-crossing. Cassel's ability to run with this role definitely makes the movie worth it.

In addition to Cassel, this film offers some other solid performances in the way of Tom Dahlgren, (What Lies Beneath) Adrianne Duncan, and Phil Wurtzel who also wrote and directed this small-town thriller.

This indy moves well and offers surprises along the way. Cassel's performance is charming and the others bring it together as a total and complete work. The Chameleon is a smart movie and is a good 90 minutes spent in my opinion. Look forward to this one.
