Storyline

Since the death of his colleague, which was partly his fault, Lieutenant Nick Gentry lives a lonesome life. Reporter Joan wants to write a story about him, and seems to be interested in other ways too, but he rejects. Instead he falls in love with his new neighbor Irene and witnesses how she's repeatedly beaten up by her husband Allan. One day, when Allan threatens her with a gun, he shoots him. Certainly self-defense -- until it turns out, that Alan's gun was made inoperable... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Sexy Neo-Noir
20 November 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

After losing his partner, the troublemaker Lieutenant Nicholas "Nick" Gentry (Stephen Shellen) is sent to therapy by Captain Harrelson (Ken Roberts) with the police psychiatrist. The promiscuous journalist Joan Branson (Mariel Hemingway) sexually harass Nick that rejects and prefers to stay alone in his apartment. Nick sees his sexy new neighbor moving to the building on the other side of the street and while peeping her through the window, he sees the aggressive treatment of her husband. Soon Nick sees he husband beating her and he goes to her apartment as if the police had received a call reporting their argument. Nick learns that the designer Irene Stadler (Jennifer Rubin) is married with her business partner Allan Stadler (Vladimir Kulich) and fears him. Nick and Irene have a love affair and Nick decides to intimidate Allan in a restaurant. During the night he sees Allan threatening Irene with a gun and he runs to their apartment and kills Allan. Now Detective Rains (Wally Dalton) has to investigate his fellow colleague that unravels dark secrets of his lover.

"Deceptions II: Edge of Deception" is a sexy neo-noir with a reasonable storyline. It is great to resee the gorgeous and hot Jennifer Rubin and Mariel Hemingway acting in a B-movie twenty-four years ago. The plot has flaws but is not so bad and entertains. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil):"Marcas da Traição" ("Marks of the Betrayal")
