Predictably Struck
27 January 2016 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A beautiful blonde woman is stabbed to death, apparently, by a man wearing dark clothing and a knit cap pulled over his face. Six months later, sexy San Francisco defense attorney Emmanuelle Vaugier (as Kate Wilson) receives a call from her handsome ex-boyfriend Ivan Sergei (as David Walker). He has been charged with the murder we saw before the opening credits. Returning to her hometown, Ms. Vaugier reluctantly agrees to help Mr. Sergei beat the rap. Their old attraction resurfaces, but Vaugier tries to keep it professional. Almost everyone in the cast thinks Sergei is guilty, so Vaugier has a tough task ahead. Benjamin Sztajnkrycer would have been a neat little story, had this production stuck to being a series of derivatives with a twist. But, just when you thought you'd seen something a little different, it ends up being far too ordinary. Terry Ingram's direction adds some mystery and the music, by Stu Goldberg, is outstanding.
