Not very original, not bad either
9 April 2009 | by MRBICKLESee all my reviews

"The Danger of Love" is, first of all, a TV movie, and personally I don't care how well written or how original they are (almost never), a TV movie can never surpass a motion picture. I say this because I enjoyed "The Danger of Love", considering my opinion of made for TV productions.

It's a thriller, unoriginal and with no surprises, but that entertains just like things like "Columbo" or "Perry Mason" do. It's about a happily married man that one day has an affair with a younger woman; his wife appears dead and because of his affair he's considered a suspect. That's the basis, no more, no less, a subject seen a million times in far superior films, besides the acting is limited because of the TV medium (Fairuza Balk shows up, but briefly). 6 out of 10.
