Storyline

The LA police are baffled: someone is killing people who have been found innocent of violent crimes. At the crime scenes, DNA evidence and clues linked to chess point to a suspect who's dead, recently executed for murders with a similar M.O. The cops call on Dan Marlowe, an ex-cop with psychic gifts, in an asylum after the trauma of the initial investigation. His wife wants him to say no; her brother is his former partner, who leans on Dan to help. Dan's ex-lover, an FBI agent, is also on the case, and behind the scenes is Myron, Dan's chess partner at the asylum. The game turns more deadly when Dan and family become the target. Did the cops initially get the wrong man? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

an actual chess game itself would be more enthralling
18 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dan Marlowe (Matt Schulze perhaps best known as a supporting player in the entertaining, but vacant "The Transporter" ) is a former cop who was so traumatized by his previous murder case that he has a nervous breakdown and loses his job. Years later, he's brought back to help on a case that's directly involved with the one all those years ago. All the abilities of the 'name' actors in this film (all two of them) David Carradine, and Daniel Baldwin are wasted in the minor roles of an under-acted police chief and a wildly overacted criminal, respectively. But perhaps I just choose to focus on those two because the rest of the film is completely mundane in every single way and full of enough clichés as to cause an unflattering sense of deja vu. Some movies just scream 'Direct to DVD release'. This is one of those that wears it on it's sleeve and definitely not in any good way. It must be so very tough to live in the shadow of a much more famous brother. But Director Joey Travolta doesn't do himself any favors by continuing to churn out movies of this 'caliber'. When the best thing on one's resume is a writing credit for a silly little action movie starring Anna Nicole Smith....well that just speaks for itself now doesn't it??

My Grade: D-
