Slippery slopes...
19 February 2007 | by Frank MarklandSee all my reviews

Michael Dudikoff stars as Bill Turner, a marine psychiatrist who's new client Randi Stewart (Brooke Thesis) is accused of killing her father Gordon(Dan Hedaya) however some things come to surface such as meds with deadly side effects and such new things come to surface including Stewart's past that involves her brother(a politician by the way) in a story that manages to keep your interest throughout. Quicksand is a collaboration between American Ninja veterans Michael Dudikoff and director Sam Firstenberg, back in the military horizons where American Ninja took place. This time there are no ninjas (And sadly no Steve James) and what most surprises is just how much Dudikoff has softened his approach and has acted. There aren't really a lot of action sequences (Although there as an effective car-chase) and Dudikoff doesn't do any ninjitsu that one would expect from the people who brought you American Ninja. Quicksand is indeed somewhat old fashioned in the style it's made and directed, therefore the drama contradicts the look of the film at regular intervals while the terrible music score (the film's major weakness) comes off laughably overblown. Still there are some effective moments and Dudikoff shares good chemistry with Thesis and Richard Kind. Hedaya is of course wasted and some of the subplots are half baked but I'd be lying if I said that this movie doesn't contain an energetic quality that keeps you mildly engrossed.
