Not a bad movie to view at home on basic cable, but its not worth $15 at a store.
Another revenge flick, this time from producer Mel Gibson, about the paparzzzi photo crews that stalk celebs.
I would suggest you watch this with revenge in your heart. If you like to revenge somebody, you will most likely see the merit in this film.
It has all the ingredients... car wreck caused by the photo journalists.. in a strange sort of way.
The son is on life support. This film builds its case in a purely typical fashion.
Not without merit, I would't watch this film a second time.
Poor celebrities. They are rich, famous, powerful, adored, beautiful...and...they must deal with the darn paparazzi! Isn't it a tough life? Actually I am sure they are very annoying. I've seen them at work in Beverly Hills stalking Jennifer Lopez and at the Sundance Film Festival, so I can see why the film world would be interested in a film dissing the wolf pack.
Cole Hauser plays an up and coming action movie star. Now that he has hit the big time he has become a target for the tabloids and the photographers they pay nicely for star pictures. They cross a line, however, when pictures of his wife and kids end up on a trashy rag. He confronts one of the photographers (Tom Sizemore) and they scuffle. The Pap takes advantage of the situation to ruin the star.
The script is not very compelling and the direction is weak and none od the performances stand out in this below average thriller.
