3.0 out of 5 stars Drew Fuller is the main reason to see The Kane FIles..., May 6, 2012
By 
This review is from: The Kane Files (DVD)
A crisis causes a man with a shadowy past to return to a life of crime, in The Kane Files (2010) an overdramatic tale of crime written and directed by Benjamin Gourley (Moving McAllister). Mild spoilers follow.

Ex-soldier Scott Kane (Drew Fuller) discovers that his son needs a heart transplant. With no money and no insurance, Kane turns to loan shark Daniel Morgan (William Atherton), who promises to take care of the situation if Kane will murder someone for him. Kane's wife Anna (Whitney Able, Monsters, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) is concerned about his return to the dark side, but there seems to be no other options. Kane is double crossed by Morgan, and ends up in prison, but manages to breakout in the most unlikely manner, with Sherriff Jace Olsen (Ethan Embry) and FBI man James Thompson (William Devane) both on his tail.

Loaded with clichés, and with some murky subplots, The Kane Files isn't at all believable, but it is mildly entertaining. Told in nonlinear fashion, it takes a while for the story to unfold and the gunfire erupts. Devane and Atherton are a good fit playing stock characters, and Whitney Able is also good in her limited screen time. The dialog isn't a strong point, but Drew Fuller (Army Wives) does a pretty decent job of acting, and handling the action scenes. Shot in Utah, The Kane Files plays out like the pilot for a series which apparently didn't happen. It's worth a watch if you see it on Lifetime's schedule, where it has just premiered.
