I had requested this on my Wish List after seeing the ad in Out magazine. Shannen Doherty in a spy movie with a gay main character promised campy, Spelling-style fun, and when someone bought it for my birthday, I was thrilled, settling in with a cosmo and prepared to giggle.

I was shocked. Yes, there were some funny moments, and Shannen did get to hiss out a couple of catty zingers in between gratuitous nudity of both genders. But the overall movie had a very serious tone, ramped up the action and suspense, and really held my attention. I found myself rooting for the good guys, and not just because the lead has a nice chest. This felt like a new kind of gay cinema, with quality writing and acting and a plot that had nothing to do with a gay man fighting bigotry. It was a spy movie first and foremost, and the spy happened to have a boyfriend, and it worked. I truly hope that film in the future can be as blase about sexuality. Truly great movie.

here! TV, America's first gay, lesbian and transgender television network, features many film projects featuring up-and-coming talent.

And with the popularity of the James Bond and Jason Bourne films, I'm sure the question had been posed, "What if there was a spy-action thriller film featuring a gay hero?".

here! films decided to do just that with a George Schenck and Frank Cardea film, directed by Ron Oliver featuring the first gay spy thriller featuring Jacob Keane (played by "Queer as Folk" actor Robert Gant).

The film starts off in Berlin with three agents in a mission. Jacob Keane (Grant), Marta (Shannen Doherty) and Jared (Fraser Brown) on an undercover mission that goes wrong. From then on, everyone goes there separate ways.

Years later, Jacob is now a professional photographer taking photos of models and you find out that his working partner at the photo studio is his boyfriend and he is gay.

On that same day, it is Jacob's weekend to take care of his daughter and the two have a specially planned weekend until he gets home and receives a message on his answering machine from Marta, who sounds disturbed and in trouble and needs to meet with him.

Jacob leaves his daughter with his former girlfriend or wife (who is shown to also be gay) and heads to the airport to find Marta and realizes that she is being followed. Once he meets Marta, something is wrong because she doesn't even recognize who she is.

Although Jacob and Marta have been out of the spy agency for years, someone wants them dead. The film becomes a cat and mouse chase as Jacob and Marta try to escape and outwit the thugs that are after them and try to find out why Marta lost her memory and who wants them dead.

Honestly, I would probably give Kiss Me Deadly 3.75 stars. I rounded up because I love Robert Gant and Shannen Doherty too much to give them three stars. Both Gant and Doherty took their roles seriously and gave respect and care to their character that allowed the audience to have meaningful connection to them. Most of the actors did a superb job in this film, which made it truly fun to watch. The only real exception was a hot, muscle bound henchman who didn't seem to be able to deliver a line without yelling or thinking he was in a cheesy soap opera. The storyline itself wasn't top notch, but it definitely kept me entertained. While I doubt I will watch this movie more than three of four times in my life, I am glad to have it as a part of GBTL movie collection. This movie seemed like a set up to a series of `detective' movies with Gant, which makes me have high hopes for the ones that follow. Hopefully, the ones that are to come will feel a little less low-budget without loosing the heart of their characters.

Well, color me surprised. I really thought that they would camp this up seeing as how the main character is a gay ex-spy. They didn't though. Bravo. I would love to see more, too. Robert Gant plays said character and he plays it well and what a stud he is too. My only concern, well, 2 of them actually Shannen Doherty, she is always awful and why in God's name did she get top billing??????? This would have gotten 5 stars from me except for those 2 points. The story flows and though the ending bugged me a bit I did enjoy it. More Please! Without Shannen Doherty, I beg of you! Robert....Terrific.

Well performed and acted that this is a very interesting movie to sit and watch, A couple of agents get called back into service but one has had their memory erased which means that there is a risk that they can be killed as the writer has thrown into the works a few assassins. This is a great story and is twisted with turns here and there that you wont want to move until the very end, as action is fast with marvellous actors taking you through the show and keeping you entertained, so what more do you need. I rated this an A grade worth seeing and believing, top of the thrills so now pick up the movie collect the popcorn invite a few friends over for a wonderful night in for a classic and fabulous entertainment night in, right in your own home. Enjoy!
