One bad vendetta
Rob Lowe starts Living In Peril after a road rage incident with big rig driver Tony
Longo and he arrives in Los Angeles and takes an apartment where he will be for
an extended stay. Lowe is an architect who is in LA for a job designing and building a new house for Jim Belushi. He's leaving behind in Seattle wife
Dan Nicholson-Wheeler who is expecting.
Once he moves in everything in Lowe's life turns to crap. Appliances don't work, a herd of rats moves in all getting apartment manager Dean Stockwell
mad at Lowe. Stockwell acts like someone with a broomstick perpetually up
the rectal cavity.
Worst of all is high trade sex worker Alex Meneses winding up dead in his
apartment. Someone has one bad vendetta against Lowe.
Rob Lowe now way past his Brat Pack days got a chance to reunite with his
About Last Night co-star Jim Belushi. The dynamic of their characters is
quite a bit different than from that better film. Some praise here has to go
to Patrik Ersgaard playing Lowe's quirky German neighbor.
Lowe is a much better actor than was given credit in his salad days as a Brat
Packer first class. But you couldn't tell with this thriller which dragged in
spots and didn't thrill so much.
