This week's reviewed movie is:
Perfect Stranger




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



This could have been a good thriller, but it just gives too many false leads and flashbacks.

Even if you follow most of the plots, it's exhausting.

Perfect Stranger partially redeems itself by a final twist that will hopefully bring things together -- after jerking you around.

I like junk thrillers, but this isn't great pulp.

Perfect Stranger is a lackluster thriller that contains no suspense or logic.

With walk-through performances by both its stars, it barely maintains tension despite its overwritten script.

Suspect everyone, as everyone has a back story and a motive and enough red herrings to confuse even the smartest of detectives -- one twist too many for me.

Halle Berry and Bruce Willis star in a silly mystery thriller about chat rooms and instant messages that add up to murder.

This Internet bust is tough to decide which element is worse, the acting, the direction, the editing, or the writing.

One thing is for sure, in the end it seems like nobody is who he or she appears to be.

I found this Internet-based film not only commercially generated, but irritating and not much fun.
