I was in the video store and saw a cool looking action suspense film in the new release section called "Lies and Illusions" starring Christian Slater and Cuba Gooding Jr. OK, OK, I realized it was some straight to video B flick because I'd never heard of it, but I figured, "hey, good cast! How bad can it be?" Boy, how the mighty have fallen. The first third feels like a watchable low budget indie flick and isn't too bad. Then they must have run out of money. At this point the shot-on-location story inexplicably moves from Seattle to Spokane of all places and the actors stop even trying. My wife and I were in tears laughing by this time. The unchoriographed fight scenes between out-of-shape actors with no martial arts training looked like middle aged Power Rangers on Methadone. As it gets progressively worse toward the end, better quality diologue could be found in a porn movie. Then to top it off, there's a plane crash at the end that looks straight out of an Ed Wood movie. If you see this on the shelf, be a good samaritan and remove all copies and hide them so nobody else gets subjected to this.

I am being quite generous giving this awful movie a one star rating! This movie is unbelievably bad! I cannot believe that Slater and Gooding Jr. did not read the script and laugh out loud at the ridiculous plot and cheezy one-liners! The entire film, the acting, the music, the sound effects, the script, had the effect of an adult movie, and lets be clear, the aformentioned categories are not what people watch adult movies for! My wife and I watched the entire movie, and I really now scratch my head and wonder why! I watch a lot of movies, and I can honestly say, I cannot remember when I last saw a movie that was this bad. Even if this was made for TV, there are many, many good made-for-TV movies. This one clearly doesn't make the cut. The acting is atroscious, and the worst offenders are Slater and Gooding Jr.!! It is hard to believe that these two have actually been in good movies! The sound effects, gun shots for example, are laughable!
I cannot believe this movie is $19.99!! Do not waste your money, or your time.

This movie is just awful in every way. Don't be fooled by the two name actors. It's an embarassment of script, direction, acting, soundtrack, editing, and just about anything else you can imagine.

On paper, this movie has an interesting premise. An award-winning author of a relationship book (Slater) has his fiance abducted on the night of his book's big promotional party, and after a year passes with no trace of his beloved it becomes clear that she was hiding a lot of important secrets, not the least of which being a small alcove in their garage which is filled with weapons and high-tech gadgetry. Suddenly Slater's writer finds himself hunted down by gangsters and diamond thieves, led by an unflappable and horribly overacted Cuba Gooding.

Others have said it before, and I'll add to their claims: not even in a schmaltzy ironic way is this movie worth watching. Everything about it is disasterous. Slater's amazing author has one of the worst written acceptance speeches I've ever heard. The vicious gangsters make incomprehensible decisions. The gun fights are so poorly framed, directed, and edited they seem like jokes. The fight scenes are filmed chaotically, so that the actors and actresses don't have to do any fancy footwork, but this means they also make little to no sense. In one fight scene, inexplicably, the combatants decide to jump up on tables and engage each other from off the floor.

The acting, the plotting, and the special effects aren't even amateurish, because that makes it sound like someone, somewhere was actually trying when they made this film. Not so. Every single person involved in this mess of a movie seems to have done a half-assed job, and the only resulting illusion is the very idea that this thing is even remotely watchable.

Pro's: Educational value as an illustration of numerous ways to make a really bad movie. It streamed smoothly on Amazon.
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.

Shame on Slater and Gooding for appearing in such a dog of a movie..

Its almost unwatchable the acting is so terrible..

This is the very bottom of the heap for movies I have seen..

Don't waste your time on money on this travesty of a movie.
