She devises a fantasy role-play game hoping to put the spark back into their marriage. She sets the scene and her husband takes the bait...or does he? So consumed with desire the passion enthralls her, but it's not long before Claire realizes she's playing a dangerous game of seduction with someone so familiar, yet completely unknown. Desperate to end the affair she tells the stranger the game is over, but for him it's just begun.

So very close ... so very close ... but, ultimately, the film breaks faith with the audience by pushing coincidence too far to effectively suspend disbelief.

Mechanically, the film quality and shot arrangement are well done.

The score fits the movie well.

The acting is ... well, it is OK. It is certainly not bad.

Beware spoilers follow.

The first third of the movie are very good. A very successful, empowered lady advertising executive (who speaks fluent Japanese) is deeply in love with (and married to) a nebbishy psychiatrist who is suffering from the effects of middle age in an affluent country. Consequently, when the couple tries to "have a baby," things don't go well. (There is a very clear indication it is because hubby cannot do what hubby needs to.)

Both of the members of the couple are well portrayed and both are endearing characters.

(To answer one question, "why does this super attractive women stick with somewhat boring guy?", we find out later in the movie that our heroine was a bit of a wild-child heading to an early grave until she met hubby. "Don't let this slip away, he is the best thing that has happened to you.")

One of the lady's colleagues suggests spicing things up via role-playing. She tries. He reacts inadequately to the masterful attempt, but he promises to try by surprising her during one of her frequent trips away.

Jump cut to ... a scene where she is on a trip and been out of contact with hubby.

What should happen, but there he is with a new set of clothes and a new hairdo.

Much carnality follows ... then, they set-up to meet on her next trip ...

Then, hubby calls!

Oh no! This wasn't hubby at all!

This flick is a must watch for thriller fans craving a little steam with the creep of a stalker. Claire Dennison decides to spice up her marriage to an introverted psychologist. But things go wrong when she finds herself in a hot affair with her husband's doppelganger. Her life turns upside down as the man stalks her.

Suspense continues to build throughout, and you will not regret spending 101 minutes watching it. Angus MacFadyen ROCKS in this film!

There is a lot of sex in the beginning, but believe it or not, it fits with the plot. I get tired of the obligatory T&A, but this was entirely different and actually worked without feeling forced.

Impulse is worth the price, and is a movie that will be watched over again. I give it at least an A for a variety of things. It also should be noted that this is an indie flick, and an indie flick done really well.

Impulse has the ability to be nominated for an award; Willa and Angus both have an amazing acting ability and really do shine in this film. Overall, the plot is crafted well. The script is great and the movie really brings out suspense and emotion.

Overall, a great film. However, the ending could have been longer and more specific. With that said, Impulse is one of the best thriller/suspense films to come along...in a long time!

A film for everyone, but beware there is nudity, but don't buy it for that as the film all together is amazing.

Two thumbs up!

A role playing fantasy of a psychiatrist's wife becomes the basis
for a mistaken identity when she meets her husband's double.
Worse when the double is nutsy-coo-coo ( clinical term...)
and kidnaps the husband and stalks and rapes the wife Claire.
Substitutes himself for the husband and gets the
husband arrested and confined ( but in his own hospital).
Breaking out with help from his guard friend,
the good doctor comes to the rescue.
Only to get his rewards...

I thought I was going to settle down on the couch and watch a somewhat decent psycho / mystery...but instead I got this piece of crap. This little pile of puke contains some of the worst acting this side of a Troma production. Angus MacFadyen was absolutely horrible in his "duel" roles. Willa Ford should just stick to taking off her clothes. A cardboard cutout could act rings around her. This movie is so stupid that I think I lost some brain cells just by watching it. The whole premise is beyond ridiculous and even a feeble mind like mine couldn't take that leap of faith. Do they really think anyone would believe a doppleganger could just appear in someone's life like this? Oh yeah....just a coincidence! We all know that all of us have a evil stalker duplicate who happens to live in the same city that we do. And of course, he just happens to bump into our wife at a bar. And everyone knows that she will think it is her husband and take him to her hotel room to have mad passionate sex. Yeah, it happens everyday. It happended to me last night. What? You don't believe me? Well, that's the feeling you will get while watching this turkey. When you base your plot on something the audience can't possibly believe in...it becomes a laughable endeavor. Throw in the demented acting of chubby Angus, and everything unravels very quickly. I had a hard time sitting through this mess. I only woke from my stupor when the cardboard Willa discarded her clothes. By the way, who cast this slop? These two "actors" make for the most unlikely couple ever. They would never connect in real life. It's another negative mark for this flick. Almost any other psycho/slasher movie would be more plausable than this. After watching this, my IMPULSE is to flush it down the toilet where it belongs.
