Fate Keeps You Guessing
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fate is one of those rare films that comes along every once in a while and intrigues you from start to finish. The pace of the action picks up gradually as a string of murders leaves a community baffled. Throw in the unusual pairing of Michael Pare and Philip Michael Thomas and it makes for a high-strung, tension-filled atmosphere as the two cops struggle not only to solve the case, but also to cope with their own differences.

Lee Majors is absolutely chilling as the troubled, deranged loner. The fact that he works as a custodian in a local school around very young children creates all the more psychological horror for the audience. What will he do next?

The amazing string of events that leads to the shocking, Hitchcockian ending--and the killer's twisted revelation--will put you on the edge of your seats. Director/producer Ace Cruz has created a modern masterpiece of cerebral suspense.
