Much better than I thought it was going to be. When I read what the story was about, I thought, AGAIN! We have seen this so many times. I think what I liked so much about this was Drew Fuller's performance. He was at times maddening, riveting, sincere, loving....he got it all down well. there were some surprises here and there which was good for me. I think the support cast made that possible too. Ethan Embry, sinister, William Devane, funny but dogmatic, William Atherton, he does the dirtbag so well. But the star here is Drew Fuller and his talent, I just wonder weh he will be recognized for it.

For the record, there's an awful lot of THE KANE FILES that audiences have already seen before. Indeed, the central thread of the story is practically lifted from the script of the Denzel Washington thriller, JOHN Q, and the "former hitman trying to live an honest life" has been done to countless variations, even with whole seasons of television series. So the real question here is: what's NEW to the story?

The answer is, sadly, very little.

Scott Kane (played by Drew Fuller) is the former contract killer who's trying to make ends meet with his comely young wife, Anna (the increasingly lovely Whitney Able). When their son, Owen, develops a previously undiagnosed heart ailment, Kane goes where he knows he can make the money he needs - to the local mob kingpin Daniel Morgan (William Atherton). Morgan promises Kane over a quarter million dollars in exchange for a single hit ... that's only if the dirty cop Jace Olsen (Ethan Embry) doesn't get to the money first.

Too much of the plot revolves around circumstantial plotting - Kane happened to be in the right place at the right time in order to get at the dirty cop's family; Kane spends too much of his time committed to getting back at others and too little time actually trying to get to the money promised him, even if it really existed; FBI agent Thompson (the always appreciated William Devane) has too little substance and no legitimate backstory here but always shows up in the nick of time - and, thus, the picture never really developed any momentum for me. The action sequences play out nicely, if not a bit predictably.

This movie made me angry. It made me angry because there's so much dark truth in it about America's health care system. Indeed, I think the premise of this movie is an indictment of our health care system, a system that would allow a 6-year-old boy to die because his family can't pay for his treatment. Out health care system is nothing but a g.d.' business. No money, no TV. No money, no car. No money, no medical treatment. Scott Kane would not have had to resort to such drastic measures if we took care of our own in this country.

But, if we had a decent health care system this movie would not have been made. The plot was superb, and the directing inspired. The actors were splendid. Even the cinematography was excellent. This is a great flick and should have had a wider audience.

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.

By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, MS

Remember John Q? You know a desperate father (Denzel Washington) takes hospital staff hostage when his HMO'refuses to pay for his son's life changing surgery.
Well, this is that type of story, except the father is a reformed hit man.
Scott Kane (Drew Fuller) made a promise to his fiancee Anna (Whitney Able) that if she would marry him he would leave his checkered past behind. She said yes. He left everything behind. The two had a son, who is now seven, and been diagnosed, after a heart attack, with having to have a transplant. They are barely getting by and have no insurance.
Out of options Scott goes to his old boss, Daniel Morgan (William Atherton), who says he'll take care of all the boy's expenses if Scott will kill an adversary. Scott agrees. Anna says she'll leave him if he goes through with it, but eventually caves in.
Of course, Morgan doublecrosses Scott and he winds up in prison. Morgan has the local sheriff, Jace Olsen (Ethan Embry) on the payroll and has him put a hit out on Scott from the inside.
FBI agent James Thompson (William Devane) wants Scott to turn evidence so they can convict Morgan, but our anti-hero has other plans.
He manages to escape with plans to save his son and kill his foes. A tough order when the real police, FBI, crooked sheriff and mob all want you.
This is one of the best sleeper movies out there.
