Here's the deal -- I was looking for a time-killer tonight, nothing too cultured, no red-wine sipping with friends, with a 6 hour post film analysis.
Just straight-up -- whack in the DVD player, keep the eyes open and pop it roughly out 2 hours later.
So I flicked through the new release section at high speed, "Billy Zane" caught my eye and that was enough to take it home and fire it up.
And ... time-killer it is for sure. This is a really average movie -- I'm sorry to say that I think Billy Zane has gone the way of Wesley Snipes (I watched his D-grade movie, The Art of War II last night). As for Perfect Hideout -- some say this was a spoof, others say it was an action movie, others a comedy or maybe even a horror.
Unfortunately, I think it's just plain awful. And actually, really quite annoying at times -- primarily annoying because it could have been done so much better.
You can find movies which are worse, so if you're down to the last few movies at the DVD store, then give this a whirl... But save it for your last option.
