The nature and lure of power: in Dallas, a councilman is on trial for corruption, the D.A. is running for the US Senate, a serial killer is slashing prostitutes, and a professor is murdered. Amanda Reeve is assigned to investigate the law-school killing. She hears rumors that the dead man offered women students good grades in exchange for sex. The trail leads her to two wealthy, beautiful students whose alibi is provided by a librarian. At the same time, the cops close in on the slasher. Meanwhile, Amanda misses her former lover, next in line to become D.A., and a reporter is fired for getting close to the truth about the Senate candidate. Is a cover-up or conspiracy in the works?Written by
Not having high expectations for a film I never saw or heard of in theaters, I was surprised at how entertaining this film was. True, there is some wooden acting by some of the actors, and Rachel Hunter's accent seems out of place in Texas, but the performances were by and large very good. What was more interesting was the story with enough twists to keep you guessing. Though I eventually figured some of it out in the end, it wasn't extremely predictable. You can kind of rule out some individuals, but others cast suspicion on themselves that it mixes things up. It is worth the rent.
