Second half was more exciting than first, ending quite complicated
8 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

The twin brother of pathologist Michael Daniels has been missing for ten years, but Michael will not give up the search. His former girlfriend Kate is the daughter of corrupt mayor Harry S. Porter (we're told he is mayor of 'this city' and shown that it is a large city, but never told what city). She doesn't get along with her father, mainly because of his morals, and she tells Michael her mother was given six months to live two years ago. The mayor will do anything--short of hurting his daughter--to guarantee his re-election. Meanwhile, someone is watching Michael's apartment and taking pictures of him.

At first there didn't seem to be much to this movie, and flashbacks to Michael's earlier life (including scenes with his brother Jesse) were frequent and annoying. But a major development halfway through gave it a new energy, and the second half was not only exciting but sometimes chilling, helped by very weird music and sound effects that included heartbeats. By the end things were very confusing, so it would be hard to call this movie predictable.

For the type of movie, this was not excessively violent, though violence was a part of it.

This probably wasn't anywhere close to being a classic, but it wasn't garbage either. Certainly the second half wasn't.
