lying in wait, worth watching
16 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lying in Wait is a well developed characters study, you know these people. The movie is a plot driven thriller with a twist. The movie is not driven by sex or violence though both ocur in very limited moderation. The screen play is worth watching twice to get the nuances and subtle humor. Other than Rutgar Howard, most of the actor/actresses are not recognizable and maybe with the exception of "L" deliver fair to good performances. If you watch it twice, Rutger gets a little old as he continues to get older. The film quality is grainy and the sets are somewhat dark, which fits with the dark quality of the subject matter. I have seen better films, but certainly have seen worse. There is no doubt that Lying in Wait is a low budget film, but generally a well done low budget film.
