Editorial Reviews

This intense action thriller sends Lou Diamond Phillips (COURAGE UNDER FIRE) racing to clear his name when he's framed for a series of murders he did not commit! A maverick cop under routine investigation for a job-related shooting, Jack (Phillips) finds himself being set up as the prime suspect in an escalating killing spree! Sliding deeper into trouble and with few clues to go on, Jack desperately teams with an exotic dancer (Kari Wuhrer -- EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS) who may hold the secret to the motive behind this mystery. With time running out, Jack must do whatever it takes to put all the pieces together and prove his innocence before the real killer pulls off the perfect crime!

After passing out in a bar's bathroom cop Jack (Lou Diamond Philips) dicovers his gun and bloodied hankerchief are missing, and the pocket torn from his shirt. However the missing items begin to turn up at murder scenes, setting a stop-watch for Jack to figure out why a stranger would want to set him up for murder. Also starring Kari Wuhrer (clothes on, but there is a nice scene in a shower) and Edooardo Ballerini.

I picked "Malevolent" because Kari Wuhrer was in it. She is not only beautiful but a good actress. Lou Diamond Phillips pulled off a great performance as detective Jack Lucas trying to clear his name. The real star of the movie is Edooardo Ballerini who was the scary heavy in this film.
As you watch this movie you soon can figure out what will happen next. Not a bad thing, but at times its just too obvious thus making the scenes not as much impact as they would. Pretty much you seen all this stuff before. But still everything was good. For a "straight to video" movie they really went all out for production of the car chase scenes which looked great.

Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba, The Big Hit) stars in this forgettable thriller about Detective Jack Lucas who is on a case of a killer. The killer Oliver Chadwicke played by the awesome Edoardo Ballerini (Dinner Rush, The Pest) is also obsessed over a stripper named Jessica played by the miscast but still beautiful Kari Wuhrer (Sliders, General Hospital). Oliver also is very smart but has a shaky past. Jack figures out that the killer might be setting him up to make it look like he is the killer. He finds out who he is and his history etc etc. Nothing much here except a very sexy looking Kari Wuhrer. Formulaic plot involving Cop vs. Bad Guy and the Bad Guy is tryin to fram the Cop. Phillips & Ballerini are the only two that hold the film together. Also starring Gwen McGee (Coach Carter, Mercury Rising), Jack McGee (Breakdown, Rescue Me), Iva Hasperger (Exorcism, Vlad) and Carmen Argenziano (Starate SG-1, Identity)

I bought "Malevolent" because Lou Diamond Phillips stars in it and he didn't disappoint. But Edoardo Ballerini as the villain stole the picture IMO. VERY creepy bad guy.

A couple good twists to the movie, a great car chase scene, exotic dancers and Gwen McGee playing a fine supporting role as cop Phillips' partner fill out the 95 minute good (but not great) movie.

One thing I did miss since I am partially deaf - no subtitles on the movie.
