A movie without character, still mildly entertaining
14 July 2001 | by k_kolindSee all my reviews

I saw this movie on TV with the lowest of expectations, well knowing that I was not exactly about to see a blockbuster... What first struck me and confirmed me in my worst prejudices was the apalling acting by most of the characters and the highly predictable script.

Well, one might ask, why keep watching? Because this film actually entertains, it does have its twists and turns, and it do surprise the audience now and then. Sure, the scripting, the set pieces, the actors' clothes, the camera shooting and the artistic effects are evidently copied from movies far greater than this. And sure, the subtleness of the characters and the environment is - to say the least - fairly limited. But it works - it serves its purpose - it entertains us.

The screen writer leaves little to our imagination at times (you know what I mean - pityful for such a bad movie). The movie doesn't exactly challenge its viewers. And it contains almost any kliché movie scene you can ever think of (including the courtroom-verdict scene, the classical scary movie scenes, and, in particular, the scene with the man, insaneously obsessed with the female main character, developing pictures of her in his darkroom). But in the end, it still goes quite well for 90 minutes of brainless entertainment on a sunday night. As a matter of fact, I've seen lot worse movies... 5/10... see it if its on TV, but don't spend money on it, please...
