A rather dull thriller which is lagging the thrills!
17 May 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Torn Apart" is one of the worse films I have watched in a very long time. Leading parts are played by Tia Carrere ("Relic Hunter") and Richard Burgi ("Desperate Housewives"), but the most focus is on Carrere's character Vicki Westin who's a surgeon and married to Billy Westin (Burgi).

The plot goes like this: a mysterious man kidnaps both husband and daughter, Vicki turns desperate and with no prior build up in the plot (apart of course from being a desperate mom and wife) she becomes some sort of heroic action character with quite a lot determination and of course a rather big gun; the only real surprise in the film is that she actually doesn't get to use it.

The thrills are lagging and the plot is unsupported. The acting is horrific. Carrere was actually putting up a better performance in the "Relic Hunter" series which does tell a lot. But as I said the characters are shallow, feelings of any type is exaggerated and what is worse: Carrere's character lags unity.
