90 minutes of thrills!
16 February 2002 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

The return of Judge Reinhold might have been a better title. We seldom see the one time 80's comedy king – and co-star of Beverly Hills Cop, so it's nice to see him carrying a reasonably entertaining movie.

Reinhold plays an unpaid bomb squad expert who stumbles upon a plot to blow up anything attached to a pacemaker. With the aid of a suspiciously coy and over-confident Doctor (Miller) the duo hunt down a mad bomber who has an obvious vendetta against someone in the medical profession.

Whilst Dead In A Heartbeat, is a lot lame, and a little oddball, the plot's so fresh and new that one can't helped but be engrossed in it. The idea of someone putting a bomb in pacemakers, is so preposterously absurd, that I guarantee most people will revel in the 90 odd minutes of thrills here. And it's nice to see Reinhold in a showy role for a change.
