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

Same old Stuff......
9 April 2003 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie thinking, hmmm Mark Dacoscos, I liked him in Drive from 1996, so maybe this wont be bad, WRONG!!!!! This movie is a 100% "B" movie, and a B- at that.. I seen everything coming an hour before it occured; this story has been done to death a millions times. Every actor has a stinker now & then, this is Dacoscos stinker!!! I give it a 2.1 out of 10, pretty bad!
