Decent Guy Flick
5 July 2000 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

For a low budget cable B movie, this was actually pretty decent. Jack (Ray Liotta) wakes up in the desert with a bump on his head and total amnesia. Vicky (Gloria Reuben) gives him a ride and helps starts him on his way to trying to find out who he is. Of course, while he is trying to piece it all together, some very nasty characters are trying to kill him.

The story is intriguing and handled well. It is somewhat predictable, but there are a few interesting plot twists, a good deal of violence, and plenty of car chases and action sequences. The ending was rather unfulfilling but not terrible.

The film was written and directed by Harley Cokliss, whose prior experience includes mostly TV credits. Cokliss' direction was straightforward and unremarkable, much like the desert he was shooting. The acting of the three leads was good, particularly Liotta, who has some excellent performances on his resume (Copland, Goodfellas). He has a knack for making the bad guy seem likeable, and that was the case again here.

Gloria Reuben also gave a good performance as Vicky, though it was a pretty minor role. Armin Mueller-Stahl is always strong in supporting roles and he was particularly good here as the heavy.

I rated this film a 6/10. Good acting, engaging story and adequate direction. Add one or two points if you like guy flicks.
