Double Deception (2001) from Tuna

Double Deception (2001) is a straight to vid about double-crossings surrounding the kidnapping of the daughter of a wealthy Japanese American businessman. It has plenty of twists and turns, tarnished heroes and action, but suffers from two major problems. First, they used the John Woo style gun to the head technique every 30 seconds, and second was casting a girl with little or no English skills to play the lead.


The only exposure was a stripper identified as Shannon Duffy in a long and reasonably well-lit scene.
The DVD is so over-saturated, I doubt that it is watchable on a normal Television. D.

The People Vote ...


IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a D (or worse).
