    This review is from: Kounterfeit (Amazon Video)
    Let’s see— The guy gets shot in the side and 10 hours later he is doing the dirty dance simulating copulation on a club dance floor. The next day !!surprise!! he is at the pool, and there isn’t even a wound in his side, and he shows no effects at all as he dances and jumps in the pool. The director didn’t even try to shoot scenes that had anything to do with the movie. He was too fixated on the stripper bar girls and the thong bikinis at the pool to notice anything else going on. I would be willing to bet that 80% of the shooting time of the principle photography on this film was taken up in stripper bars around LA.
    She sees the guy who killed her brother and he just happens to have a beach house right next door to the safe house??? She follows him and then lies to the police about it. What, she’s gonna git him herself??? They didn’t even try. The director and writer had one maybe two scenes in their heads and just kind of fudged it on the rest of the movie. did I mention that they really liked the titty bars?

    At that point I came here to write this review before searching for something else to watch. I just wanted to say:

    THEY DIDN’T EVEN TRY.

    P.S.

    John Asher is the name of the criminal who made this film. He was twenty three years old when some sugar Mamma gave him his chance to direct. I see that he has had the opportunity to butcher 12 other disasters (including 7 episodes of one tree hill.) Incompetence always finds it’s match.

    If the writing is weak, what is there to work with? I tried to like it, attempted to watch to the end, but didn’t care enough about either the plot or the characters – forced dialogue was insipid, tension was nil, action lacked subtlety – to make it through. Not every crime thriller can fly like the Bourne Identity (or Ultimatum, or Supremacy) but, still, there ought to be some lift-off.
