Liars All a teen thriller about who killed the blonde bombshell.
Is it any good you may ask yourself well the movie did not have my attention like others this was just another B grade Hollywood movie in the pipeline that some new actors wanted to make so they get some $$$
The only two actors i took note of where the two from the reloaded 90210 TV series.
Matt Lanter & Gillian Zinser
The Thriller is rated R so its not for teens although indirectly that is who it is aimed at.
Give this movie a miss you will not be missing anything.

The story was not an original concept, but the way the evening's events kept changing with each new witness statement was very intriguing.

A morose and monotonous thriller, Liars All is pointless dribble. The story follow a London police detective who most uncover how a young woman died during a private New Year's Eve party with a group of her friends. The characters aren't really that interesting and the acting doesn't help any. At times the murder mystery is intriguing, but it's poorly written. Lacking in craft and the talent, Liars All is a shallow film that doesn't tell a very engaging story.

It has an Agatha Christie type title and similarly a crime mystery with a big-cast keeping us in the dark as to what really happened. Sadly it's no where near as well written or as interesting as one of the crime writers novels and you might struggle to finish this one.

Kind of hard to understand at first. Wasn't the best movie.

One line summary: Sour romantic relationships end badly.
Three stars of five. Lukewarm all the way.

-----------------------------------

An American film set in London, UK. The film starts at a police station where a pregnant detective reviews what went bad at a party. During the interrogations there are many flashbacks.

On New Year's Eve, there's a party at a flat in London after some time at a public house. Attendees are: Dennis (soccer, very successful), Billy (soccer, team mate of Dennis, not as successful), Tanya (a waitress), Mike and Katie (American students), Kim and Brenda (friends traveling together), and Missy Dembree (an American studying in London).

Early on, we see that Missy did not survive the New Year's Eve game, which was a variation on Truth or Dare. They start with ritual bloodletting (a drop or two), followed by a second ritual of smoking recreational illegal drugs.

At this stage, the director has advised me of context, but my probability of liking the film is about 10%. Idiots on drugs and booze, doing Truth or Dare, a version with no prizes, but only penalties? Hm...how can this turn out well? Which characters should I find engaging?

Next stop, breaking and entering plus burglary; they film it for the sake of the party. Hardly worth the downside risk. That is where Missy gets shot. More flashbacks.

Mike knew Missy in LA, then Missy became attached to Dennis. More of the Truth or Dare. Still more flash backs, with a touch more clarity. Mike loves Missy, Missy loves Dennis, Dennis has left Missy and is engaged to Casey. Missy cannot take this. Mike is discouraged. The Detective has all sorts of motivations for someone causing Missy's death, and different accounts of how it happened.

The interrogation-flashback-interrogation cycles continue. The detective finds more nooks and crannies of motivation and fact.

How many go to jail? Does anyone get away without charges?

-------Scores--------

Cinematography: 7/10 Terrible in the introductory music video; hand-held nonsense. Otherwise competent.

Sound: 7/10 OK, though the incidental music seems to just fill time when nothing is happening onscreen.

Acting: 5/10 No one was particularly good or bad. All of them portray knee-jerk followers of modern conventions for wastrels with money. If you are looking for a study in drug-using herd animals, here it is. Matt Lanter had the most screen time and the greatest number of lines; fortunately, he was almost competent.

Screenplay: 5/10 There are zero characters to root for, zero to despise, zero to embrace. The level of choppiness is too high. Linear exposition would have been more effective.
