18 Certificate


Our Score
This rather predictable and ham-fisted attempt at a gripping thriller from New Zealand tries to cover its clichéd tracks with twists and turns aimed at confusing the viewer. Simone Griffeth is the wife planning to get rid of husband Bryan Marshall with the help of a lover, unaware that her accomplice is actually a thief setting her up. Are you still with us? A film noir that's more bland than black.


The wife of a wealthy man conspires with her lover to have her husband killed. However, her accomplice is secretly a cunning thief with his own agenda in mind. Thriller, starring Simeon Griffeth, Steve Marachuk and Bryan Marshall.
