Pretty Good Movie
8 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the premiere of Desperate Escape last night on Lifetime Movie Network (Feb. 7th) and thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Although, the actual plot isn't anything the average Thriller/Mystery Fan hasn't seen before and the film doesn't really re-invent the wheel here, it still held my attention til the very end despite the end reveal being fairly obvious by the last half hour. Still, it was well acted and the suspense factor kept the film moving and entertaining.

The movie begins with Brooke (Elisabeth Rohm) waking up from a 2 day coma after being attacked on the docks with retrograde amnesia. She can't recall much about her life or who she knows or what she does for a living - only her name and relies on Michael (Michael Shanks), her supposed fiancé who was by her side when she awoke, to fill in the pieces. The Doctor found bruises on her body that occurred prior to the accident but Michael explained that Brooke is active and likes to hike and play tennis. Meanwhile, once released Brooke is afraid to be alone and is easily overwhelmed with flashes of her memories coming back in ways that she can not understand. She also feels like she's being chased or followed by someone watching. Michael takes care of her and is understanding and patient filling in the pieces of her life that she can't seem to remember including a broken relationship with her sister who lives out of state and a best friend, Melissa (Serinda Swan) who also wants to help Brooke out. She also sees a psychiatrist, Dr. Reynolds (Michael Jonsson), who Michael told her that they had seen before and who he thinks will help her work through the memory flashes.

However, all is not what it seems. Can Brooke really trust her fiancé, Michael? Is what he tells her really the truth about their life before the accident? Were they really even engaged? People that knew her and him didn't remember an engagement. Is Melissa really her best friend? Is her relationship with her sister really estranged? What do the memories mean? Why was she attacked? Who attacked her? The viewer puts together the pieces of the truth as Brooke puts the pieces together and by the end, you have a pretty average Thriller script but due to good acting (Elisabeth Rohm was great here I thought), good directing and an overall good pace, I'd rated it a 7/10. I'd definitely recommend catching this movie when it's inevitable repeated over and over again on Lifetime Movie Network.
