Storyline

Escaped serial killer James Becket, who killed his own father whose expectations he never fulfilled, but now especially targets his wife Theresa 'Tess' and her family, is too good at disguising himself and other deceit for detective Diffs task force. Only one man proves able to fight back in his league: former cop J.T. Dillon, who was already training Tess in self-defense and becomes her lover. Becket decides to find hiding place by kidnapping Diffs wife, and thus enforce a final show-down. Written by KGF Vissers

CRAP!
14 March 2004 | by (Danville, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is the PREDICTABLE Hollywood CRAP where the BAD GUY gets away with murder SO MANY times due to the inability of the GOOD GUYS to fire their weapon with even BASIC MARKSMANSHIP SKILLS!!!

This movie was SO frustrating that I "fast forwarded" through the BS after the first FIVE times the BAD GUY "successfully" dodged a hail of pistol fire being fired at him FROM JUST ACROSS THE ROOM!

The ONLY redeeming scene was where the BAD GUYS WIFE NAIL him with ONE SHOT in the end!

I would have LOVED to have the Director in my living room so I could "Bitch slap" this idiot every time he wasted my time with "unrealistic" scenes!
