Mark L. Lester's Comeback?
12 August 2010 | by sim87See all my reviews

Finally a new picture from the man that brought to us some great B-movies in the 80s and early 90s.

So, what about the Lester-trademarks in this film?

First, the plot is bluntly obvious. The whole "who" and "why" is clear from the first few minutes. I never watched a Lester-film for the plot though, but for the feel and make. But why do his recent works have to pretend to be thrillers then? I think this picture in particular would have worked out better if the obvious hadn't been camouflaged as a thriller but if the whole set-up just had been presented as an action/slasher movie.

There were plenty of topless scenes as an end in itself. It's what we are used to from all the Lester classics. However, I missed the giant bullet holes from the old times. Even though there weren't any more than two shots fired in the whole movie, two elephant-size bullet holes would have contributed to the (actually very lame) end.

Last but not least, the film has Eric Roberts in it! Rating +1 just for the sake of it.
