If you can swallow some of the more overripe dialogue ... it's not nearly as mediocre a two hours as the trailers would have you think.

It's an exuberant example of what it is -- a bodice-ripping murder 'meller' -- and at that it gets a passing grade.

Though written and directed by a Pulitzer Prize winner, Original Sin is better known as the picture in which a naked Angelina Jolie (by then a certified Oscar winner) and Antonio Banderas do the horizontal mambo. [Blu-ray]

What we have here is simply an erotic thriller with so many melodramatic turns, it eventually becomes laughable.

Cristofer takes liberties with the novel's downbeat ending and tacks on a happily ever after coda that seems more in keeping with something made under the studio system ...
