Unnecessary
8 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

I love Robson Green and Michael Kitchen. I've never been very fond of Francesca Annis' work, though. She was very good in "Parnell and the Englishwoman". At the end of "Reckless", we have the lovers together and love conquers all even if Richard doesn't like it.

Michael Kitchen is so at ease as Richard and Robson Green is so strong and confident as Owen. The only performance I had trouble with was Annis'. Maybe the character was meant to be an adult scatter brain going through the change of life, but all I saw was a pathetic woman who wanted to live her life over with her doctor husband. She was just replacing Richard with Owen. The character or actress was grating on my nerves. Personally, if I were a man and Anna had done those things to me, I would have chucked her out the door ages ago. The most moving scene is at the end. And yes, I cried. There is just something about a man like Michael Kitchen crying that grabs me in the throat.

I guess if you are a completely maniacal romantic you might enjoy Reckless and then the Sequel right after the other. I usually just watch the first one. All wonderful drama and romance is in the first movie. The sequel was just, in my opinion, completely unnecessary.
