Every six minutes in America, someone's identity is stolen. When Michelle Brown walked into an office one day to fill out a simple rental form, then handed it to the receptionist, she never dreamed that her information would fall into the wrong hands. As Michelle keeps receiving hefty bills for services and merchandise she never purchased, it doesn't take her long to figure out that someone has stolen her identity, and is determined to take over her life, no matter the cost. But when a warrant is issued for the arrest of the imposter, the real Michelle is wrongly accused. With her life escalating out of control, Michelle must regain her own self to confront her nemesis, and appeal to the U.S. Senate for more concise identity theft laws. Written by
Poor handled material about a real story concerning a young woman (Williams) who has all her data and her identity too stole by an ambitious and ill minded secretary (Sciorra). The movie goes on and on, never offering any climax moments or interesting facts, until the constrained ending when informations about the facts and the persons involved are given like a policial report.
The story of this movie has potential, indeed. Nowdays, one of the big problems in commerce activity is the real possibility of one has all his or hers personal information (name, number of social security, ID or credit card)used by stealers and modern pirates in a series of crimes.
Unfortunately, 'Identity Theft' never hits the bull eye. In my opinion, I think this movie was made almost with an amateur touch, like a second grade production. I give this one a 3 (three).
