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>

A Disappointment
14 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Final Move" is a disappointment, especially considering the B-list cast and director. I have very low standards when it comes to flicks like these.

The plot is: The chess piece killer is at it again. After his last victim, he is caught and sentenced to death. After his execution, the killings don't stop. Which is weird for detective Marlowe (Schulze) who has psychic vision. He teams up with Roman Krieg (Lochlyn Munro) to stop the madness.

"Final Move" tries hard (too hard) to be a slick mystery-thriller. The opening credits are snazzy, but the opening scene is downright horrible: after the killer murders some woman, he takes off his mask and starts laughing for about ten minutes. You'll see.

David Carradine and Daniel Baldwin don't have a lot of screen time despite their mugs on the cover. Schulze is alright, but his best role is in "The Transporter". The explosion near the end is faker than Milli Vanilli.

If you like the actors, don't subject yourself to this mess.
