Con's: Almost everything else. L&I began as an obviously low-budget, but possibly intriguing, character-driven thriller starring the excellent Christian Slater. I cheerfully accepted the attempt to portray, with only twenty extras, a crowd of hundreds at an awards ceremony in the opening scene. My popcorn was still warm and I expected that mysterious motivations and plot-twists were just around the corner. Unfortunately, disillusionment began to creep in before my popcorn cooled. The evil mobster's(Cuba Gooding) terrifying henchman turned out to be an elderly fellow with a poorly-dyed, ridiculous combover. Gooding's bad guy had all the malevolent ferocity of a sleepy Sunday School teacher. The kidnap scene which kicked off the plot was poorly choreographed, acted and shot. Nothing reasonable or convincing happened after that. There are just too many ways in which this movie went off the rails to do it justice in a review. Lies and Illusions deserves to be the subject of a full semester of study or a master's thesis on the pathology of a failed movie.
Anyway the movie is great to watch as a couple, it has some action with some suspense and romantic humor.
There were a few minor twists but overall the progression of the movie is fairly predictable. Even so it was very entertaining to watch and I didn't find myself bored at any point in time.
For the used price of under $10.00 its more than worth it.
