Storyline

Orphan Mike O'Conner was abused from age three by his own dad, fled to Chicago to start a rock band but got dragged in bad mates' crime and convicted under probation. Mike's sister, Kate, managed to get him released and employed as assistant lighthouse guard under Adam Terrell, an author on sabbatical. However, Adam is murdered by serial killer Art Stoner, who takes Adam's place and identity. Art himself is the traumatized son of a prostitute, abandoned by the father, who had to watch his mother 'working' and got beaten, as if responsible, whenever her 'clients' hit her. 'Adam' seems to work out as Mike's substitute father, smacking him at worst, but their past starts catching up and Art being seen in action as Kate's lover poisons the triangle dramatically.

boring drivel
4 March 2004 | by (minnesota) – See all my reviews

This movie was very boring. The soundtrack had nothing to do with the movie, and seemed more fitting for Top Gun. The characters were very shallow, and were not developed at all. This movie was full of stilted dialogue, and how could anyone find a fat Tom Berenger the "town's most eligible bachelor," is beyond my imagination. Be sure to watch for the ludicrious guitar playing scenes on top of the lighthouse, where there is no amp or cords or anything. A comment was made during the viewing of this movie which stated, "I could find better actors than these in an alley, dead." The "surprise" ending really wasn't a surprise, but then again I didn't even care. One out of ten stars
