Set against the backdrop of a wealthy Midwestern city, LAST WILL tells a story of deception, corruption and misguided family loyalties. Written by
Tatum O'Neill has the main role in this quite predictable, but well made film about a woman dealing with the wrong people and their secrets. Tom Berenger is playing her husband, suffering from some health problems.
Hayden is a well grown woman marrying into the real estate family of the Emery's in Kansas City. She discovers that her husband's brothers, which are taking care of the family's real estate properties, are cooking the books, and are bribing city officials. She gets her husband to care about what's happening with Emery Propertys. Then the problem starts.
The film is more of a TV-drama when it comes to acting and production values. But it's OK done,the leads are doing a good acting job. Berenger is playing great as a drunk! James Brolin is great also a detective Sloan. Tatum is doing well, but this might be her weakest film ever.
The film has a good nerve, and is therefore exciting, though you obviously know what will happen, just not when. But the film doesn't keep the quality. The film doesn't manage to keep acting up to notch all the was through. So the film has a consistency problem throughout. After an hour there's a completely misplaced "love music video" which tips the film completely over, just like a commercial brake. Quite ridiculous. From there the film falters. It's almost like they changed director mid through.
