Pretty fun film with a great cast
13 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what to expect form this film, given that I couldn't find one single review for it, but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The plot is nothing special, something about searching for 3 million dollars that's real but dosen't legally exist(don't ask) It's the cast that really makes this film, you've got Martin Kove, Jack Scalia, James Russo and Frank Zagarino(who plays the hero this time instead of playing a bad guy like he usually does) they all do commendable jobs, but the female villain with lesbian tendencies was my favorite(she makes a crack about the hero's love interest having "sweet-smelling panties! LOL) There's the running gag about the protagonist keeps on changing his story and name(hence the title "Shattered Lies") Gerry Lively does a great job on the action scenes, so all in all this was a fun ride, so check this one out if you can.
