Being in the wrong place at the wrong time leaves aspiring Seattle lawyer Natasha Gregson Wagner the target for murder in this badly paced and unconvincing thriller from actor/film-maker Kristoffer Tabori (son of Dirty Harry director Don Siegel). But debt-riddled Currie Graham's attempts to silence the woman who may possibly have seen him kill his elderly boss are so inept that it's hard not to laugh, despite the increasing seriousness of events. Wagner's awful performance doesn't help, drawing attention to the weak and ridiculous plotting, and almost total lack of atmosphere. Consequently, only the tense score makes the signposted climax interesting, as Graham's desperation explodes with annoyingly convenient results.
