Absurd Dialogue and Bad Acting
26 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dark Angel is an OK show, but not to be taken too serious I don't think; it's simple entertainment. Most of the shows are predictable, but entertaining nonetheless. Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherly do a good job of acting.

This is one of the dumbest episodes out of this series. The writing is too silly for believability even for this show. But the biggest downfall is actually the actor Douglas O'Keeffe playing Bruno Anselmo. For being some ex-bad guy henchman he is the most bumbling idiot full of ridiculous antics and everything that comes out of his mouth is so unbelievable for a guy who supposedly is in the witness protection program. Max "kidnaps" him from the police witness protection because Logan thinks that this guy isn't safe with them and they need to keep him safe for the next 24 hours before court the next day. So Logan has Max take him to his own safe house. While Max and Bruno go into the new safe house he starts whining about there being no TV or radio and he just won't put up with that. He acts like he's going to leave so Max pulls out some handcuffs and tells him to come over. Then he actually thinks she wants to get kinky with him, yet everything he has witnessed and experienced from her is disgust with him. How could he actually think that she is trying to seduce him? She of course handcuffs him and goes out to get pizza. When she comes back he somehow has two strippers dancing around him. YEAH RIGHT! So they have to leave and go to a hotel where again he keeps saying the most asinine dialogue. In the hotel room he says he has to take a shower, so she lets him. After awhile Max wonders where he is so she goes in the bathroom to find out he escaped out the window. She later finds that he went to some underground UFC match accompanied with pool tables and sees him playing pool with some random dude. Bruno runs his mouth there which means Max has to throw down on some tough guys. The whole scenario and more situations that follow are just unrealistic and absurd that I'm surprised there wasn't calliope music playing in the background. If this guy was really scared for his life and wanting to be in protection for the next 24 hours anyone with half a brain would stay put. But he never acts like anything serious is going on in his life at the moment. It's just plain bad writing, bad directing for this actor and bad, bad acting. For the most part the shows are good enough to suspend believability, but this one was borderline insulting to the viewer.

2 stars.
