(2001) from Tuna
Double Deception (2001) is a straight to vid about
double-crossings surrounding the kidnapping of the daughter of a wealthy
Japanese American businessman. It has plenty of twists and turns,
tarnished heroes and action, but suffers from two major problems. First,
they used the John Woo style gun to the head technique every 30 seconds,
and second was casting a girl with little or no English skills to play
The only exposure was a stripper identified as
Shannon Duffy in a long and reasonably well-lit scene.
The DVD is so over-saturated, I doubt that it is
watchable on a normal Television. D.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, this film is a D (or worse).
