Zane narrates the whole time in the style of classic noire, but classic this sadly is not. It is very stylish, with lots of matinee idol looks and music that tries too hard to tell us what to feel and what is about to happen. The clichés come faster than a freshman on prom night, and I actually found some of them bordering on comedic, which as this is a thriller I am sure was unintentional. There is `jazz club' sax whenever Ms Renee even gets close to a bedroom for instance. Whilst there is good acting through out, it still fails to engage, the characters are just all too unlikable for us to gain any empathy. They are all motivated by naked greed and lust in a way that would make the yuppies of the 1980's salivate with envy.
The plot is to smuggle the stones back to New York and then sell them for huge amounts of cash. The double crosses then start piling up like lemmings in mating season, and the one liners become ever more obvious -"she played me like a violin", for instance. This then is a triumph of style over substance and seems to out stay its welcome, even though it is only 106 minutes long.Read more ›
