Dream-like Quality To This 'B' Film
24 January 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

There is a strange dreamlike quality to this film, which makes it hard for me to rate after one viewing.

Eric Roberts as "Jack Hart" and Kelly Preston as "Jean Starr," had the lead roles. It wasn't a bad movie. My main complaint was the overuse of the Lord's name in vain" with the crew cut detective and Roberts' girlfriend "Isabel" as the main offenders. Lee Ermey, who played the famous profanity-spewing drill sergeant from "Full Metal Jacket" was the garbage-mouth detective in here ("Frank Deacon") while Isabel was played by Roberts' real-life wife, Eliza.

If that had been reduced, I would have kept this video, because it featured good suspense and was unpredictably strange. Thus, multiple viewing of this would be fine. Could it have been better? Certainly. I am a big fan of cinematography and there was nothing special about the way this was shot. I'm still not convinced I've seen too many good films with either Roberts or Preston starring in them. There is a reason both of them never became big stars.

However, the atmosphere was good in this film; Preston and her exposed boobs certainly were eye-candy, and even Roberts' dumb character, "Jack" was kind of fascinating to watch at times. If this movie came out on DVD, I would give it another look. By then, I'd probably know if it was really good, or just garbage. It's hard to tell on just one viewing, because it's so different.
