It's Been Done Before
4 July 2001 | by logshrikeSee all my reviews

Just saw this movie today for the first time. Although the plot was plausible in most cases, I was simply amazed (and disappointed) at how similar this movie was to Body Heat. In the opening sequence (and at several points later in the movie), you can even hear the same music score that was used in Body Heat. Had this movie been slightly more original in its plot and musical score, it may have risen above the long list of average film noir movies.
