| Father / Son .... relationships 101
Ugh! In a film about a high priced call girl's murder, you would expect a high sleaze factor. Well that isn't the case. What you get is an estranged father (Eric Roberts) and son (Jacob Tierney) bonding movie. There is the usual friction and pretty much nothing happens until a very convoluted police investigation commences. Unfortunately "Dead End" telegraphs everything, and is astonishingly predictable. Shoddy police work aside, there isn't much here to grab onto. Ultimately the lack of believability becomes unbearable, and you will be reaching for the fast forward button. This is for Eric Roberts completests only. Others beware ! - MERK
