An Exciting and Bold Techno Thriller
24 July 2006 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

.com for Murder is an intriguing murder mystery movie that captures and entertains the audience imagination throughout the arduous twisted plot. It is reminiscent of such notable "who dunnit" movies such as The Thin Man and Double Indemnity.

The premise of this high tech psychological movie revolves around the shadowy world of the Internet. The audience is introduced to the mysterious Sondra Brummel who is recovering from a skiing accident in her boyfriend's mansion. Although her leg starts to deteriorate and turn gangrene (much like the rest of the actors) it is her fidelity to her soon to be husband that keeps her anchored in the house. I think there is a lesson for all of us here that love truly conquers all.

If you are the murder mystery type you will find that by watching this film you will become part of its original audience, or rather a stylized nostalgic notion of what that audience was. Thus the film is a mere trigger, not necessarily important itself. There seem to be lots of these, people who consider this film as not only enjoyable, but the apogee of film noir, which itself is (in this view) the most movie-like of movies. Noir, romances and musicals attract these folks, as do legendary celebrities.

When the heroine (the actress not the drug) is perusing the internet for possible natural cures for her ailing leg does she "accidentally" contact a possible killer in an Internet chatroom. The audience quickly learns the importance of fake "sign on" names when the killer learns the antagonist's identity since she signed on using her real name.

She and her friend Misty, who mysteriously shows up like a bad cold, enter a virtual game that evolves into a cat and mouse escapade that can end with either the hunted or hunter dead.

The two lead actors all give terrific performances. Nastassja Kinski is at the center of everything. Kinski's character is torn between what Nicollette Sheridan offers, and her close relationship with her fiancée, played by Roger Daltrey. Kinski is excellent in portraying her struggle between her desire to grab the illicit pleasures offered by Daltrey, and her deep admiration for the killer, played by Huey Lewis, as a person and as an example. Sheridan in turn is perfect in her role as a woman who uses everything she has to get what she wants. Lewis's performance may be the best of all in bringing his character to life - a straight-arrow, perceptive and diligent worker who also comes across as a thoroughly enjoyable character.

The dazzling array of techno-gadgets is sure to be one of the memorable parts of the movie. The stunning photography and mountain scenes will leave you breathless as you try to follow the delicate and sometimes interesting storyline.

You may want to know who dies but that would give away the ending that is sure to go down in history as one of the most surprising finishes to a movie since the Scooby doo ending of Waynes World.
