5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise! Quality, not camp November 18, 2008
I had requested this on my Wish List after seeing the ad in Out magazine. Shannen Doherty in a spy movie with a gay main character promised campy, Spelling-style fun, and when someone bought it for my birthday, I was thrilled, settling in with a cosmo and prepared to giggle.

I was shocked. Yes, there were some funny moments, and Shannen did get to hiss out a couple of catty zingers in between gratuitous nudity of both genders. But the overall movie had a very serious tone, ramped up the action and suspense, and really held my attention. I found myself rooting for the good guys, and not just because the lead has a nice chest. This felt like a new kind of gay cinema, with quality writing and acting and a plot that had nothing to do with a gay man fighting bigotry. It was a spy movie first and foremost, and the spy happened to have a boyfriend, and it worked. I truly hope that film in the future can be as blase about sexuality. Truly great movie.

here! TV, America's first gay, lesbian and transgender television network, features many film projects featuring up-and-coming talent.

And with the popularity of the James Bond and Jason Bourne films, I'm sure the question had been posed, "What if there was a spy-action thriller film featuring a gay hero?".

here! films decided to do just that with a George Schenck and Frank Cardea film, directed by Ron Oliver featuring the first gay spy thriller featuring Jacob Keane (played by "Queer as Folk" actor Robert Gant).

The film starts off in Berlin with three agents in a mission. Jacob Keane (Grant), Marta (Shannen Doherty) and Jared (Fraser Brown) on an undercover mission that goes wrong. From then on, everyone goes there separate ways.

Years later, Jacob is now a professional photographer taking photos of models and you find out that his working partner at the photo studio is his boyfriend and he is gay.

On that same day, it is Jacob's weekend to take care of his daughter and the two have a specially planned weekend until he gets home and receives a message on his answering machine from Marta, who sounds disturbed and in trouble and needs to meet with him.

Jacob leaves his daughter with his former girlfriend or wife (who is shown to also be gay) and heads to the airport to find Marta and realizes that she is being followed. Once he meets Marta, something is wrong because she doesn't even recognize who she is.

Although Jacob and Marta have been out of the spy agency for years, someone wants them dead. The film becomes a cat and mouse chase as Jacob and Marta try to escape and outwit the thugs that are after them and try to find out why Marta lost her memory and who wants them dead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prepared to be kissed again February 10, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Honestly, I would probably give Kiss Me Deadly 3.75 stars. I rounded up because I love Robert Gant and Shannen Doherty too much to give them three stars. Both Gant and Doherty took their roles seriously and gave respect and care to their character that allowed the audience to have meaningful connection to them. Most of the actors did a superb job in this film, which made it truly fun to watch. The only real exception was a hot, muscle bound henchman who didn't seem to be able to deliver a line without yelling or thinking he was in a cheesy soap opera. The storyline itself wasn't top notch, but it definitely kept me entertained. While I doubt I will watch this movie more than three of four times in my life, I am glad to have it as a part of GBTL movie collection. This movie seemed like a set up to a series of `detective' movies with Gant, which makes me have high hopes for the ones that follow. Hopefully, the ones that are to come will feel a little less low-budget without loosing the heart of their characters.

This film was on the Here!cable channel and like "third man out" and the other donald strachey mysteries, this features a gay hero in the lead. I purchased this one mainly because of that leading man, Robert Gant, but was happy to see that the film stands on its own merits. The lead character Jacob Keane, played by Gant, is an ex spy who is pulled back into action. The movie contains great action sequences and Gant is up to the challenge to play a hero that is like a combination of James Bond and Jason Bourne, but still has his own personility and even a boyfriend. Though not a big fan of Shannon Doherty, I was quite surprised by her performance here and the chemistry that she and Gant has, not romantically but as partners, was great. Great acting, good action, and a good story that hopefully will lead to future franchise such as the Donald Strachey films.

2.0 out of 5 stars Total dud August 18, 2009
Just before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Jacob and Marta are trying to get safe passage for a Russian who wants to defect, but it all goes horribly wrong and the defector dies. Fast forward nearly 20 years and Jacob now lives the life of luxury in Milan with his lover Paolo and daughter Julia. But a call from Marta sends him to the train station only to discover that she has a tail and no memory of him or her life. As they try to solve the mystery, the bad guys are at every turn. Will they be able to uncover the mystery before they are silenced too?

This movie is totally low budget and it shows. Supposedly set in Germany, Italy and Switzerland, all the vibrant cities look like the same anonymous grey Canadian city as a stand in. Robert Gant, usually such a great presence on film comes across as wooden and unemotional - particularly in a key scene which begs for emotion. The dialogue is bland and cheesy, the plot completely predictable, any semblance of action (this is an action film, isn't it?) is missing, and my biggest gripe - they haven't seen each other since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and neither has aged one iota (at least Doherty's cheesy wig was left behind). And worst of all, the door is left open for another installment. No thanks, I'll stick with Oliver's much better Strachey mysteries.
