Patrick Bergin, Michael Ironside, Maxim Roy, and Joan Severance star in "Cause of Death," a film from 2001.

The main reason I didn't like this film is the lousy acting.

When the mayor's cousin is murdered, a deputy DA (Bergin) whose reputation has suffered in a previous case is assigned to investigate the murder. The cousin's wife is the beautiful, sexy, body to die for Joan Severance, so we can see what's coming. Meanwhile, his partner (Roy) doesn't like the way he's handling the case and seems jealous of the wife, who is the obvious suspect.

I just couldn't get into this. It looked cheap and some of the acting was horrendous.

Left me cold.
