B-Film In Which Eric Roberts Has The Brains
4 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This had a definite Grade B-feel to it, but it wasn't bad. I wouldn't rate it over five stars but it did have fairly interesting action scenes and good colors. However, my summary headline tells you something.

Of the three main actors - Michael Rooker, Lysette Anthony and Eric Roberts - Roberts had the best role. This is one of the few movies I saw him in where he actually was more cerebral than physical. The dialog on some of these other characters is really stupid and the acting by some of the supporting cast isn't the best, either.

Rooker and Anthony deliver horrible performances. I guess they were in the film just for the sex scenes. There are three - count 'em - steamy sex scenes in here, all of which contribute to that B-feel because they are in here solely for gratuitous purposes.
