No matter the begging and pleading, Mercy should be taken out back and buried. Better yet, blow it up first and then bury it.

I'd be lying if I said I were bored by this film. But it's not exactly the most exciting.

This unsexy thriller's about as negligible as the overly-dense novel it was based upon.

Audience Reviews for Mercy

This movie contains a lot of sex just for the sake of sex, and that's not of interest to me at all, so I couldn't entirely enjoy it. But besides that, there is a pretty decent mystery, although it's a bit too slow-moving to be really fantastic. This isn't a bad movie, just not one you should watch in mixed company.

An erotic murder mystery movie that leads the investigators into an underground women's sex club. Wilson plays a seductive member of the club and with Barkin do well at upping the suspense. Entertaining, not diabolical by any means. A good film to see.
