This movie was criminally bad
9 July 2007 | by view_and_reviewSee all my reviews

What did I just witness? In fact, hold on... 9-1-1, I would like to report a crime. Yes, it is a cinematic crime. You can find the suspects easily by looking up "BlackMale" on IMDb.com. They should be easy to find because none of their careers have taken them anywhere. I just stopped on this movie during a late night channel surf, and it seemed interesting enough. A guy being entrapped by a beautiful young lady; I just wanted to see where it was headed. I later found out that it was headed towards the pits.

Well, the title is silly enough to suggest that the movie in turn wouldn't be any good. Although it had some credible actors in it. Bokeem Woodbine is no stranger, and I certainly remember Roger Rees from "Cheers", but this movie just stunk like nobody's business. The plot and events just kept getting more and more absurd up until the utterly ridiculous ending. Somebody was definitely blackmailed here. I think the actors were blackmailed into being in this movie, but being that it is an indie film, there was no distributor blackmailed into helping produce this junk.
