Not so bad for a c-grade direct-to-video movie.

Incendo media specializes in quickly shot, low-budget TV dramas with convoluted plots and has-been actors. But... This shot in Montreal (standing-in for New York, I guess...) crime drama is above their usual crop. Louis Bolduc, the director, could very well be the guy to save this segment of the entertainment industry by cleverly giving these quickies a bit more production value than the budget can afford and by getting decent actors who can give their best despite the obstacles of a tight shooting schedule and zero rehearsal time. Jessica Capshaw is believable as a cute and clever young woman who must use all her wit to get out of a murder accusation. She may not be as drop-dead gorgeous as her mom was, back in her "Temple of Doom" days, but she can surely act circles around her ! Veteran Canadian TV actor Art Hindle has fun with the role of a charming media-loving lawyer who has a few tricks and surprises up his sleeves. Overall, you won't get the feeling that you've lost your time watching this drama, even if it doesn't "feel" like a big movie. Let's see what Louis Bolduc serves us next !

Great crime drama with a surprise ending.

It is gripping. Great story. Clever dialogue. Superb casting. Surprise ending. Jessica Capshaw and the actor who played her lawyer were totally believable. My husband and I often find crime stories so convoluted with details that it is hard for us to comprehend or to keep up with it. This was easy for us to follow and if it hadn't been for commercials, we would never have left the television! The camera shots were perfect for the drama and the whole story was paced just fast enough to keep us glued to the screen. Would love to watch another film by the same writer. Actually, this would be a great pilot for a series. Fran Watson Richards

It's got a name?

***SPOILERS*** Overplotted as well as far fetched murder thriller that has pretty insurance adjuster Cassie Stewart on trail for her life in the murder of her best friend Diane Summers and lover Bobby Rose. As things turned out for Cassie she just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when she showed up in her apartment, that she shared with Diane, to not only find Diane and Bobby shot to death but end up with a brain concussion by having her skull slammed into the doorpost by their murderer! With prosecuting attorney Rolly Wycker seeing his chance to get himself elected as the city's next District Attorney he's determined to have Cassie not only convicted for murderer but have her sent to death row and get executed. This in order, as Wycker once said publicity, to make death row, by having a white woman on it, look like a cross section of America. Without even asking high priced defense attorney L.G Mennick takes Cassie's case Pro Bono in seeing the free publicity in it. Mennick together with his assistant Jerry Pratt makes a mockery of Wykers attack, in his cross-examination, strategy in showing that he in fact, despite his showboating in the press, has absolutely no case against his client Cassie Stewart. It's just when it seems that a verdict of innocent for Cassie is a slam dunk a number of things unexpectedly pops up at the trial that boomerangs against her! One being that she in fact was having a romantic relationship with the murdered Bobby Rose that she and Mennick denied. And even worse Cassie was also in possession of a diamond necklace that Bobby gave as a present to Diane with her initials carved in it! ***SPOILER ALERT*** As Cassie starts to realize that she's somehow being set up to take the rap in the Daine Summers/Bobby Rose double murder she flies the coop and becomes a fugitive from justice. Using her analytical ability as an insurance adjuster, or odds maker, Cassie slowly uncovers the truth behind Diane and Bobby's murder. A truth so shocking and unbelievable in that she was unknowingly targeted to take the blame or it right from the very start! By someone who had not only murdered the pair but who later had carelessly, like the WWII saying loose lips sinks ships, implicating himself in their murders! And with Cassie now knowing who the murderer is she's in far more danger in him, or is henchmen, murdering her then in the law catching up with her!
