Storyline

After taking a picture of a woman on the street, amateur photographer Hollis is shocked when she knocks on his apartment door and threatens his life. Demanding that he and the photograph must leave town with her or she will have to kill him, Hollis reluctantly obliges. While on the run, she reveals she's an ex-MI5 agent that double-crossed a Colombian Cartel. Just as she was about to escape for good, Hollis' photograph of her surfaced and now the Cartel knows her whereabouts, and his. Written by Meydenbauer Entertainment

A bit far-fetched without basic logic
19 September 2017 | by MovieIQTestSee all my reviews

The guy still used a cheap, out-dated film camera took pictures? Still got dark room with red light to develop his films? Wow, if the story background is in the 80', I might buy the whole story more willingly. As to the storyline itself, that guy just took pictures randomly in the street, and he randomly took a picture of a woman in the park, then went home to develop what he took that day. Then the woman just showed up, knocked his apartment door and asked him to give her the negative. This is when I WOWed again. Then the so-called two killers, one male and one female Columbian Cartel, just like her showed up at this guy's apartment. Then well, she forced this guy to run away with her to Phoenix, Arizona. The storyline and the scenarios simply got so many loopholes that even a moron would find it difficult to swallow. She had already burnt and dumped everything she used to have, credit cards, phone, SIM card, passports, flash drive...whatever, there's no electronic chip planted under her skin, so why these two Columbian killers could still so easily follow up her trail? Why the British intelligence got to do business with the Columbian Cartel? Why she had to force this deadbeat so-called photographer to run away with her? Just because if without taking a male on the road trip and two assassins chasing after her, the story simply would become impossible to develop?

Bad movies are always full of holes without any logic, this film, although shot with some beautiful road scenes, sunrise and sunset, desert....yet the whole story was just based on a ridiculous ground. The two leading roles, the so-called British agent (Spy? For what?!) and the down-and-out photographer, actually performed pretty good, but again, if the premises of the storyline are ridiculous, there's no way to make them great. When films have to force the viewers to abandon their I.Q. and basic logic senses, they are just BAD films, and this one is no exception.
