Movie Info

A man is forced to deal with the dire consequences of his actions in this drama. Emery Simms (Shemar Moore) is a guy who seemingly has it all: a successful business, the respect of his friends, and a beautiful wife, Constance (Vivica A. Fox); however, beneath the surface not all is well in Emery's world. He's been cheating on his wife with a woman named Allannah (Golden Brooks), and he's become unwittingly involved in a murder. Between a talkative witness to the killing and Allannah's former boyfriend who holds a grudge, Emery sees his world is starting to fall apart now that he has trouble he can't solve by throwing around some money. Motives also features Joe Torry, Mel Jackson, and Keshia Knight Pulliam.

Audience Reviews for Motives


This movie was good. I really enjoyed every minute of it. The very first time I saw it, I got confused near the ending. After watching it a second time, I was saying to myself "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh danggg they set him up? LOL. I was quite surprised at how a lot of things turned out. I thought Allannah was seriously going to get the abortion. I thought Connie was Allannah's murderer. Biggest surprise of them all, I had no idea that Emery stole Connie from his friend "B". This movie was very interesting. I never saw this movie on television nor the theater. I was browsing movies on and came across this movie and said to myself "this sound good" so I purchased it. No regrets :)

Here we go again yall! I am hooked! I hope they keep them coming, you know?! First they started with Trois 1, 2, and 3. Then they went to Motives 1 and now Motives 2. Does anyone know if there is a Motives 3 in the making or have I missed it? These are great movies if you like sexy, secrets, etc. And I do!

Motives was good although I preferred Motives2. This is the best acting that I've seen by Golden Brooks thus far
