Movie Reviews - Perfect Stranger

Robert's Review

Rowena (Halle Berry) is a hard-hitting journalist known for cracking the big stories. After the death of an old acquaintance that she'd bumped into recently, she sets her sights on Harrison Hill (Bruce Willis), the famous advertising business mogul. Apparently he and Grace (Nicki Aycox), Rowena's acquaintance, had been sexually involved and that Grace was threatening to go to Hill's wife about the affair. After Grace was killed, Rowena goes undercover as a temp at Hill's advertising agency with the help of her highly technical partner Miles (Giovanni Ribisi) who helps set her up with a new fake identity and credentials. As Rowena gets closer and closer to Hill, a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse is played and the consequences could be dire for everyone involved in the sordid situation.

It's a shame when such good actors come together and make such an absolutely horrible and pointless movie. The script was perhaps the worst one yet of 2007… it disappointed me on nearly every level. The character dialogue was mediocre (Willis has very few lines and mostly just stares stone-faced at the

camera), the cyber sex chats weren't necessary for the story and took up a lot of screen time, the characters were pretty one-dimensional and transparent and the so-called drama was boring. It wasn't thrilling or engaging in the slightest. In addition to all that, the script has several big twists and turns towards the end (essentially the death-throes of the dying script) which were just ridiculous… hammering the final nail into the script's coffin. R.I.P. you piece of crap, I'll be sure to write "I want my $10 back!" on your tombstone.

All in all, I'd give this movie 1 STAR (out of 5). Re-watch value: NONE (not even cable or Netflix worthy).

Brett's Review

"Perfect Stranger" should have stayed a stranger; this was one of the most predictable movies I have seen in a while. When investigative reporter Rowena Price (Halle Berry) learns that her friend's murder might be connected to powerful ad executive Harrison Hill (Bruce Willis), she goes undercover with the help of her associate, Miles Hailey (Giovanni Ribisi). Posing as Katherine, a 'temp' at Hill's ad agency, and Veronica, a girl Hill flirts with online, Rowena surrounds her prey from all sides, only to discover that she isn't the only one changing identities. The closer Rowena gets to finding out the truth, the more we see how far people will go to protect it.

I pretty much figured out most of the movie about half way thru, and the other half didn't do much too really shed light on anything else. While Ribisi's performance was well played and the little screen time that Willis had was pretty good, it just couldn't hold the movie up. The story as a whole had some flaws and the director James Foley tries to make sense of the movie and wrap everything up, it just fell short and the very ending really didn't need to be there (setting up the sequel). Overall the movie should have been a straight to DVD movie.

Overall Rating: 2 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: Low (Rental or Cable).

Trivia: The first motion picture to be filmed at "ground zero", the site of the former New York World Trade Center since the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.
