Successful sports agent Darren (Michael Ealy) sees his perfect life slowly fade when he is caught in a police investigation by a detective (Hilary Swank) who discredits, humiliates and defines who he is in this tense and provocative psychological thriller. have a crazy one night stand. While on a business trip to Las Vegas, Rafe encourages Derrick to come to terms with his disappointment with his relationship.
At home, Derrick was brutally attacked one night by masked intruders. When the police come to investigate the investigation, none other than Val is the detective in charge, and with disgust, it’s clear that Derrick isn’t the only man he’s dreaming of.
If we find out quickly, she has her own problems, especially when she is caught in a custody battle over her daughter with her ex-husband (Danny Pino), a passionate politician. It was also clear that Val didn’t want what happened in Las Vegas to stay in Las Vegas.
But director Deon Taylor’s films feel a lot older, with their cheesy feelings and old-fashioned approach to female characters. Everyone goes crazy, adulterous, kills or everyone. If the ‘fatal’ were more prone to the inherent unpleasant sensations, this retrospective attitude would be at least vaguely bearable. However, the current premise of “Fatal Charm” never holds the promise of strange fun.
For every complex movie subject, there is one that may not be intentional. Throw the word “Fatale” on the screen with the sultry woman and it’s usually the same as “Femme Fatale”. But the deadliest thing about Taylor isn’t her misguided pretense or her crazy character or even her clumsiness. . Ealy and crazy character nonsense. There is a sense that this subtype still likes to do some really bad things. It’s not that bad.
The story offers the essential satisfaction you’d expect from its genre: punished infidelity. Pure insanity that’s bad too, even if it goes beyond what people expected. One reason for the waning climax was that the fairly believable Swank didn’t bring out the crazy spark that Val needed from the start.
You might think he’s a skilled cop (despite his glamorous looks), a damaged mom, or even a bad planner. But to keep her unforgettable, like Glenn Close in “Deadly Charm” or Jessica Walter in “Play Misty for Me,” her heroism must be fueled not only by mastery, but also by insanity outside the box.
While this last day’s black films never collect the flaming illusion foam that takes genre imagery to a heavier dimension, there’s enough juice to get your attention. Swank, who is also the film’s co-producer, does a good job here and maintains Val’s reputation even though he has committed an incredible crime. This film finally shows the effect of other famous thrillers with practical effects.
