Fatal Beauty Reviews
This wretched, alleged comedy is an utter disaster from beginning to end, and Goldberg is completely charmless in the lead role. Maybe it's just because the rest of the picture is so ugly, but she doesn't register a single laugh here. The action sequences are violent and way over-the-top. They just don't gel with the amiable tone of the rest of the picture. In fact, the whole plot concerning drug dealers and a new, especially lethal narcotic doesn't fit in with Goldberg's easy-going nature.
And the whole romantic sub-plot, pairing her up with Sam Shepard is just embarrassing and unconvincing. It's nice to see a filmmaker take a chance with a bi-racial romance, but these two stars have zero chemistry.
"Fatal Beauty" is a loud, dumb and boring action comedy that's neither exciting or funny. Who thought this was a good idea?
I was surprised by how much fun I actually had with this one.
