| not too bad
'Desperate crimes' is a not-too-bad crime & action B-movie, in a very Italian setting. Its Italian (harbor) flavor comes out abundantly, and contrasts very well with the American mind of the male lead searching for his lost lover girl. In the end he walks away with the other stranger in this movie: the female German hotel-receptionist.

'Desperate Crimes' also has its weak spot: it is presented as a Traci Lords vehicle. That is far from any truth, for Traci's part is small and non-substantial here. Playing a heroine addict doesn't suit her either, for Traci Lords is just too beautiful for that. Back in 1993, this movie clearly indicates how Traci's stern refusal to go naked forced her into such a minor role.
