Could have been better
17 May 2009 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a couple with an open relationship, whose relationship is tested as because of their flings turning serious.

"Lie to Me" has great performances, especially by Steve Sandvoss. He portrays lust and jealousy through his charmingly boyish looks. The plot is realistic enough to possibly create resonance in the viewers. How Mason and Sam's relationship spirals down the drain is vividly portrayed, and I do feel sorry for Mason's predicament. However, I think the entertainment value is slightly hurt by the slow pacing, and the preachy feel of Brandon Routh's character at the beginning of the film. The camera is a little too shaky for my taste too. In summary, "Lie to Me" falls slightly short of my expectations. If it was shortened, or pacing made faster, it could have been better.
