Storyline

Attractive, hard-working Lewis 'Lew' Brookbank's love - and professional life came crumbling down after he found his adulterous wife Janice and her lover Dick murdered on a yacht. He moved to a derelict gas station in Carpenteria, where he paints commercial signs. Lew accidentally overhears a couple making love in their car and planning the kidnapping and murder of the man's wife. Lew manages to track them down: jewelry manager Ralph Hagen and antiques shop clerk Isobel Delano. Lew confides in present lover Rita Caswell, needing help with the sinister Herbert Claremont while he plans to blackmail the kidnappers. More complications follow. Written by KGF Vissers

Lazy and convoluted
16 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THREE WAY is a modern-day attempt to update the classic 1940s film noir genre to a modern setting, featuring a protagonist up to his neck in murky dealings as he attempts to turn a planned kidnapping to his own advantage. The title and the inclusion of some extraneous sex scenes make this look like an attempt to plough the same furrow as WILD THINGS, but this is nowhere near as good.

Dominic Purcell's protagonist is one of the worst things about this: he's ineffective and weak throughout, and you just wish he'd man up and throw a punch here and there. None of the other cast members are particularly good, with Gina Gerson's role a limited one - she seems to be included for name value alone.

Although the convoluted plotting could have been interesting in better hands, often the writing feels lazy here and many sequences which should be suspenseful just aren't - they're boring instead. After I finished watching, I couldn't help but consider this a waste of time.
