Drama, Thriller
There’s a lot of talent on the screen here, and that almost makes the film worth recommending. Almost. Director James Foley makes a stylish film that is stuck in neutral due to its convoluted, implausible plot. This is a movie that you like even less after you’ve seen it, because you run the scenarios through your head and realize the whole thing was a lot of bunk. Halle Berry stars as Rowena, an investigative reporter pissed off at how powerful men can squash her heavily investigated and totally plausible stories with their checkbooks. Within the first few minutes of the movie, she’s quit her job and is waiting on a train in the night. We see her having a conversation with a childhood friend about some sleazy affair with an advertising magnate (Bruce Willis), and that same girl turns up dead a few days later. Rowena takes it upon herself to investigate the murder of her friend, and the results are pretty lackluster. There’s some decent acting work, but it’s just a genre retread.
