When the Bough Breaks sets an all-time record for unresolved loose ends:
scars on the back, birth defects, numbers on the palms, role of the
full-time ice cream clown, and on and on. Of course, there are suggestions
of untold stories that parallel and bisect the story. But there's enough
here to feed a decade-long TV series. (Oops. There goes my chance to make a
killing on the spin-offs.)
There are signs of a heart beat in the characters of Audrey Macleah and Jordan/Jenny--but the pulse is weak.
Seconds has the theme and plot line of a classic, but doesn't quite make
in presentation: "Problems" appearing after rebirth are virtually 100%
anticipatable and lack focus and relevance. Anyone taking the first steps
out of a customary life-style experiences similar confusion and
While the cinematography is considered Academy Award quality, the overuse of special-lens shots is boring and burdensome.
Despite these flaws, Seconds is a must-see for everyone interested in ground-breaking "shockers".
