Robert De Niro, Ed Norton and Milla Jovovich star in this drama thriller about a convicted arsonist trying to manipulate a parole officer with the help of his beautiful wife
A high profile cast (this film is one of the essential steps to Kevin Bacon) and slick effects battle with a silly script. They just about come out winners
Released shortly after the huge commercial success that was Ghost, this is a little like an overlong episode of the The Twilight Zone.
It has Sutherland as Nelson Wright, a medical student obsessed with the near-death experiments that he and his buddies have become involved with. As they take their fascination with the after-life to the max, things become more and more dangerous.
Funnily enough, this is one of Roberts's better early performances, coming before she got all carried away with nonsense like Dying Young and Sleeping With The Enemy or her Erin Brokovich renaissance. Despite the high-profile cast, the lazy script means that Schumacher has to rely far too much on the slick visuals to kickstart the hearts of his audience.
Still, the on-off romantic entanglement of the two leads was enough to ensure that the film didn't die a real death at the box office.
