Film Review

Nearly 15 years after first grabbing that ice pick, Sharon Stone reprises her most famous role in this London-set sequel. Novelist Catherine Tramell (Stone) is again under suspicion after her latest lover (played by soccer "bad boy" Stan Collymore) takes a fatal dive into a London dock. There's no Michael Douglas this time, however - Britain's own David Morrissey is the male lead, playing a psychiatrist who becomes shrink-rapt by his icily erotic new patient. Stone still looks the bee's knees at 48 and director Michael Caton-Jones does a workmanlike job of keeping things rattling along, but there's precious little beneath the film's surface glitz and glamour. The plot is preposterous and the much-vaunted eroticism is nothing to write home about - but as no-brainer entertainment, this just passes muster.

Plot Summary

Erotic crime thriller, a sequel to the 1992 box-office hit, starring Sharon Stone and David Morrissey. When a star footballer dies in mysterious circumstances, suspicion falls on American author Catherine Tramell, who's now living in London. Top psychologist Michael Glass investigates the beautiful writer's involvement and is drawn into a highly-charged game of deception.
