Storyline

It's been three years since Emery Simms was wrongfully imprisoned for a murder he didn't commit. Emery's best friend Brandon (Blakemore) and ex-wife Connie (Fox) are now married, running a successful restaurant and nightclub in Atlanta. Their lives change dramatically, however, when Simms is killed in prison and new evidence emerges as to Brandon's role in the framing of his friend. When Emery's estranged brother Donovan (White) enters the picture, he becomes determined to unearth the explosive truth behind his brother's downfall. New motives, deceptions and lies are revealed, but the closer Donovan gets, the deeper he'll get himself into trouble and the possibility of lying in a grave, right next to his brother.

Goofs

At about 1:19 into the film, Connie is holding a copy of an Atlanta State Penitentiary Visitors' Register. The top of the sheet reads "Atlanta State Penatiniary", clearly a mispelling of the word penitentiary. See more »

A good sequel!
3 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Motives 2 is a pretty decent sequel to Motives. I must admit that it wasn't as good as the first one, but it is worth seeing. If you are a fan of the first Motives then you would want to see this sequel to find out what happens to Brandon(Sean Blakemore), Connie(Vivica Fox), Derrick(Joe Torry), and the cop(Mel Jackson). It carries an very interesting story line. There is a lot of dialogue. So in order to figure out the ending you must pay close attention or you will not understand what happens in the end. The producers and writers all did well. Stomp The Yard's Brian White does a stellar performance as Donovan, the brother of Emery(Shemar Moore, who does not appear in this sequel). If you saw the first Motives, then you will certainly be anxious to see what happens next.
