Goofs

During a discussion with Lyle in a parking garage, Miss Parker begins the scene wearing a skirt suit and red top. When Miss Parker walks to the door of the parking garage, she is wearing a leather trench coat and pants (the outfit is in another scene that takes place in the parking garage). The next shot of Miss Parker has her back in the skirt suit. See more »

William Raines: The cover up directive came from high up.
Sydney: The Tower?
Miss Parker: My father?
Sydney: Triumvirate?
William Raines: I don't know. I do know this. The cover-up, it was all about the Pretender named Alex.

User Reviews

The Pretender lives on
11 June 2001 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

The Pretender 2001 is an excellent and brilliant movie. Picking up where the series ended, the movie answers many lingering questions from the last season and brings in some startling revelations. The movie keeps the style and mood of the series. It also provides background info about the show for those who may not have seen it. The actors and writers deserve congratulations for a job well done. Granted, I noticed some of the same goofs as everyone else, but the movie is really not hurt by it. Hopefully, more Pretender movies will be made after Island of the Haunted airs later in the year. Thumbs up for Pretender 2001.
