    WARNING: SPOILERS!!!! "Femme Fatale" is a frustrating movie.

    On some levels, it's very good; the "heist" sequence in the

    beginning is beautifully produced and holds your interest, but the

    middle third drags and the "twist" ending is not quite as "twisty" as

    we'd like. There are numerous clues throughout the movie that

    something is amiss -- watch the clocks -- but when the "surprise"

    is revealed, it seems tacked-on. Rebecca Romijn-Stamos is sexy;

    Antonio Banderas is adequate as the "guy caught in the web" and

    the overall feel of the movie has DePalma's usual faux-Hitchcock

    look. Not one of the great ones, but worth watching, especially if

    you like to look at scantily-clad babes! 7/10
