As Good as Dead Reviews

    Great idea for a movie that was not executed well. The "surprise" ending is not hidden very well, and so much more could have been done to build the tension and keep the audience guessing if it had been hidden better. It left me disappointed that this was all there was.

    Very underrated and quite overlooked. This film had a decent story with amazing scenes of suspense and tension. It was a breath of fresh air, this one.

    A thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat...it may not be the best movie but it was pretty intense

    If it weren't so graphically grim, brutal & full of bitterness it might be unintentionally funny...not even a guilty pleasure, or one one should feel really guilty about...it may even attempt a lesson yet ultimately it is too sick to watch closely; bad enough to keep it on in the background, occasionally keeping up with what's going on...horrible dialogue, & MacDowell's delivery is particularly bad &, for a southerner, her southern accent is even terrible...let's not forget the over-the-top Whaley; I know, he's supposed to be a psychopath (hmmm, maybe he is unintentionally funny)...yep, the actors seem to have hit bottom alright; guess ya gotta make a living...again, it's tough, particularly for aging actresses, no matter how attractive (despite her disfiguring make-up)...

    s Good as Dead was an entertaining, unpredictable roller coaster ride of a movie that was gripping and intense. Frank Whaley makes the most amazing Villain,so good you want to slap him yourself. The rest of the cast was great as well if you can overlook a little over acting by Andie MacDowell. There are some twists and turns but I was satisfied with the ending.Not saying it was politically correct but then again there is nothing about this movie that is politically correct. You have people calling other human beings Towel heads and saying thing like there are more Monkeys in this city 'New York' than there are in Africa,referring to African Americans. There are slurs against Jewish people and gays,no stone in the hate pool is left unturned. It's not a gore film or torture porn but there are some very unsettling images and scenes that are sure to make you wince.I found it to be quite clever in writing and execution. You feel some compassion for people that don't deserve it but I guess that's a part of being a 'a real human being'.... I give it a big thumbs up it's on Showtime on demand at the moment..
