A big hurt of a let down
25 February 2014 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

Here's a film that really doesn't see it's story through, while being a disappointment, on about almost every cylinder. The acting is so so, nothing to write home about. It's bad story structure here, some scenes almost unwarranted. Even the scenes in the sex club hardly do anything to titillate you. It's a shame as what's presented here, was a hell of a interesting plot, where it's story really didn't blossom. David Bradshaw, a little known Aussie actor, a thin John Burgess type looking guy, who sounds bloody like the game show host, plays an investigative reporter who sorely paid the price for one of his articles, which landing him in the clink. Now out, he's investigating the murder of a scientist, who apparently was about to blow the lid on this mind control drug. Of course the daughter wants revenge, and she teams up with Bradshaw to take down the baddies. There are so ugly moments too in this forgettable film, one funny scene with Bradshaw meeting an old mate (an ex Sullivan cast mate) in a football stadium, where the mate goes off at him, accusing him of being "a f..kin user". Another scene has a an annoyed motorist honking Bradshaw behind, where he signals go around, verbally retaliating by saying "Bite your bum". So I gather the reader has picked up on this critique, that we don't have the most original script, in what is sadly a mess of a movie, which like 2000'S Chill Factor, that great had potential to be a good movie. Sadly again, here, that potential has been blown off.
