Dreadful script, atrocious actingBy a customer , 04 Dec 2013When you see a film as appalling as this its quite hard to find any words to describe it! To think someone actually sat down and wrote that script! It only got half a star from me as it doesnt seem possible on this system to give a film no stars.
guilty pleasure with joseph fiennes!By haylesbaylespigstales (177 reviews) from Fleetwood , 08 Aug 2013really liked this film, more so because of the oh so fit joseph fiennes who is sultry, downright dirty & my kind of guy really.
plot a bit thin as you can guess the end before it arrives but good all the same
They Ruined It!By sammyboy (10 reviews) from London , 03 Dec 2012I got this movie as I had just finished reading the book which was excellent. This movie altered the most fundamental element of the plot making the whole film pointless. This is a truly abysmal adaptation with dreadful acting, poor script, awful character development and a confusing plot. Nicci French must be angry at how ths film destroyed their story!
A messBy a customer , 25 Oct 2012I've read some other Nicci French novel but not the one this is based on. They are generally well put together plot wise - so I can only assume the script writers are responsible for the mess here.
Too list all it's failing would only add to the time I have wasted on it, suffice to say that after the initial set up, where our protagonists meet and fall in love/lust there is a absence of any coherent story or plot or character development. It is as if the writers had once seen a thriller and vaguely remembered how one works. The farcical ending couldn't come soon enough for me.
On the plus side it looks good, and makes good use of London settings. Heather Graham is quite watchable (with and without clothes!) and generally makes the best of what the awful script throws at her. Joseph Fiennes though is horrendously hammy, the rest of the cast forgettable.
Boring me softlyBy The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 25 Mar 2012Highly implausible soft porn erotic thriller turkey. Joseph Fiennes at his most enigmatic monosyllabic and unfathomable supposedly male hunk. The plot is completely absurd, and the icing on the cake is when they supposedly go mountaineering on their wedding day as their reception! The twist at the end is laughable. Impossible to take this film seriously. Don't try the bondage at home!
