Best-selling author Wes Wilson’s self-help book about honesty has saved millions of relationships. But when his fiancé is abducted and declared dead, Wes suddenly finds himself hunted by hired killers, beautiful spies, and a ruthless criminal mastermind with a taste for both style and violence. What does Wes have than an international smuggling ring wants? Why did his late bride-to-be keep a secret room full of weapons? And who can he trust when nobody is what he or she seems to be?

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a joke? December 29, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Gak! I stopped watching after a half-hour and thank goodness it was a rental. It's not only an obvious plot, but even the bass playing was a rip-off.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor movie, below average Blu September 27, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Was hoping his would be a sleeper as the ad campaign has been in full swing with poster placements, distributor plugs and so on. Unfortunately, from beginning to end things keep ticking away at making this a recommendation and/or a re-watchable film.

The story follows a best selling author as he is mysteriously lied to from everyone that surrounds him (fiancee, lawyer, new girlfriend, etc.) then unwittingly gets swept into the criminal world to fix these "lies and illusions". Christian Slater plays the writer, Cuba Gooding plays the bad guy boss, and the two fighting gals are played by B movie queens Christa Campbell and Sarah Ann Schultz.

Truly, everything about this film as it transpires makes you want to turn it off, from the corny writing (if Slater said that stupid line of "I am just a writer" one more time above the 10 others I would have had to call it quits), cheesy situations, jittery camera work that blurs each action scene (the effect of hiding not really doing the stunts and low speed contact), bad editing (the voices blatantly mismatch the mouth(s) in well over 30 different scenes), but mostly the horrible fight choreography. The movie was being sold in the ads as having the cool fight sequence between the two ladies, but their bar kick fight scene was so poorly done, it felt hollow. Screening the film in store actually lost rentals as customers were immediately turned off by the bad camera work and cheesy fighting. The camera jitter was so bad in one of the lawyer office scenes it actually felt like the camera was bumped and dropped.

The Blu quality was not given any treatment and the resulting low grade feel gave it a reference right to a B film (non Blu preservation).

1.0 out of 5 stars Return this movie to the video store immediately! March 4, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
I tried my best to watch this movie to it's bitter end, but had to give up. Christian Slater and Cuba Gooding Jr. would have done adequate jobs if they were directed properly. An interesting plot with talented (at least one) actors undone by bad acting, a poor screenplay and production. If you must see this movie for educational purposes -- rent, don't buy. You have been warned.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a big favor and pass on this January 16, 2010
By R. Dunn
Format:Blu-ray
A quarter of the way through this movie my wife asked me why we were wasting our life watching it. Unfortunately I said we should stick with it to see what happens, and all that happened was pure sillyness. I can't believe these actors would be part of something like this!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible!! October 2, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I would have expected alot more from Christian Slater and Cuba Gooding, Jr. I think my jaw was on the ground the whole time watching this movie thinking can this be real..The acting was horrible and the two women in the movie are definately B rated movie actresses. I was excited to see this movie because of Christian and Cuba and was very dissapointed. Im still in shock..
