David Bradley stars as a detective who investigates a killing of a woman, the main suspect is a blonde bisexual (Who was also her lover) (Anna Thomson) who has a shady past and has made a fortune under mysterious circumstances. Also in the subplot division is Ashley Laurence who wants to be with David Bradley and who may or may not have a just as shady past, while David Bradley's character is a neglecting father to his daughter as well as an alcoholic. The beginning of my review kind of reads like a shopping list, and the main reason is because that's how trivial and clichéd this movie is. It's one of those cheap erotic thrillers, that you watch on TV and although it mildly engages you, you have no real thought about it after-wards. Acting wise it's only Ashley Laurence who brings any credibility (and seductiveness) to her part, too bad her role is so genuinely ridiculous. Also David Bradley seems completely awkward as when sans any form of martial arts, he appears lost with how to play such a character. Last but not least is Anna Thomson who really isn't convincing at all, as she comes off far too old for the part. (She was after all 39.) Indeed this is one of those movies that is rather poorly made in its plot angles, as they rarely weave coherently and basically make little sense as they happen. Still to the movie's benefit it stays watchable mainly due to a fast pace but other than that, this is only for die hard Ashley Laurence fans. I would normally include David Bradley fans but being that there is no martial arts action or indeed much action for that matter, this is not a sure thing. I personally thought Basic Instinct was far more erotic and compelling.
