British TV movie
2 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before Clive Owen became a star in the movies, he did a ton of TV - several series and some TV movies. This one, Split Second, is from 1999.

Owen plays Michael Anderson, a corporate attorney under pressure at home and in the office. His wife Angie (Helene McCrory) is a talented interior designer who stays home with their young children. One night, Michael leaves work, and on his way home, a cyclist tries to play a game of chicken with him. Traffic, tension, and some road rage intervene and the cyclist, swerving back and forth, is hit by Michael's car and dies. Freaked out, Michael flees the scene.

His situation goes from bad to worse. Tensions mount at home, and at the office, a frustrated Michael asks his boss if he could move to another position. His boss suggests he could offer him an overseas placement. When Michael mentions it at home, Angie erupts.

This is a decent film without much style to it. It's dark, depressing, and slow, but it's driven by Clive Owen's intense performance as a man whose guilt tortures him.

I'm a big fan of Owen's, so I did like this.
