Twisted
13 December 2004 | by wnterstarSee all my reviews

There is a website that shows silly abbreviated synopsises for movies...for this movie it says "There's a plot twist, There's a plot twist, There's a plot twist...There's a plot twist...There's a plot twist...There's a plot twist...The End...There's a plot twist."

This sums up the movie very accurately. It's mind popcorn, nothing more. The saving grace of this movie is that you KNOW it's a melodrama that's really not to be taken seriously.

The main actors bring life into what could be very overdone characters. The cinematography is not to be missed, and the supporting cast fills in the movie nicely.

Not a great movie, but a good movie to vegg out to!
