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. Written by

excellent movie
30 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has wonderful plot twists and an excellent story. well worth watching. Motives two has strong characters. I thought it was a great sequel and sequels are not usually something I care for. Ms. Fox does an excellent job as always. This is a strong movie with a great cast. It continues the first motives movie and includes just enough of the first story for someone who didn't see the first one to be able to watch the second one and still understand what is going on but it doesn't rehash all of the first movie with a lot of flashbacks. Just includes the important necessary parts to keep you up to date on the story line.
