Predictable and Flawed Collection of Clichés
25 December 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Arizona, the veteran Detective Miles Porter (Richard Roundtree) becomes obsessed for catching the murderer of his goddaughter Cindy (Michelle Sebek) and three years later he requests his retirement to dedicate to the case in full time. Meanwhile in California, Richard Alden (Roark Critchlow), his wife Kathy (Holly Marie Combs) and their son Sam (Max Burkholder) moves to the expensive condominium Hidden Glade Estates seeking security. Kathy is still traumatized by the attack of a burglar in their former home. They are welcomed by their next door neighbor Caleb Theroux (Patrick Muldoon) that befriends the family and Kathy becomes close to the divorced Brianna Fine (Traci Lords). Meanwhile detective Porter finds a lead to the killer of Cindy.

"Point of Entry" is one of those predictable and flawed collections of clichés that seems to be in a shelf of a studio ready to be filmed and broadcast. The plot is shallow, the identity of the killer is disclosed still in the beginning, and there is no explanation, for example, for the disappearance of Detective Porter in spite of the stringent security of Hidden Glade. The security guard Raul is totally naive, attending to an alarm signal after the visit of Detective Porter and the absence of Richard that have never left the condominium. Holly Marie Combs keeps the same uptight posture and body expression of Piper Halliwell, her character in "Charmed". My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Perto de Casa" ("Near of the House")
