Ouch!!!!
29 December 2004 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Ouch!!! What a horrible movie. I never ever seen such a combination of bad acting, bad action and bad writing in one and the same movie. Dead in a Heartbeat never had a heartbeat it was just dead, flat, boring, and I honestly can't believe I wasted 2 precious hours of my life watching this crap.

It started out awfully, as most TV action movies do, but I hoped it would get better, and since there was nothing else on TV I decided to keep on watching. That was a BIG mistake. It just got bad. And when you thought things couldn't get any worse, they did. I honestly can't believe that any TV station at all with any dignity would produce this. It was like a bad porno movie without the porn. I mean I could have written this script. WHEN I WAS 12 !!!

To sum it all up: Just don't watch this movie, It sucks more than one likes to believe.
