Terence Knox rocks everybody's socks off!
14 February 2005 | by KnatLouieSee all my reviews

What have we here? Heather Locklear (from 'Spin City' and 'T.J. Hooker' among other things) is being stalked by mad ex-lover Terence Knox (who I know best from 'Tour of Duty' and 'Children of the Corn II'), as the ex-marine/bomb-expert who wants her to realize that she should only be with him, and nobody else by demolishing a bunch of buildings in the city! His performance is really good, and kept me interested.

She falls in love with the psychologist/cop in charge of the situation, played by Gerald McRaney (who I haven't seen before). He helps her along the way, and predictably becomes her new lover. I also liked the role by Peter Mark Richman (who I know from 'Friday the 13th' and 'The Naked Gun 2½') as the police captain, who runs things.

There's a lot of nice shots of buildings being demolished, and good character development, although there aren't enough plot twists to make it thoroughly exciting.

But all in all a good way to spend an hour and a half. I even saw it on VHS, but that didn't ruin the experience, just made it look more 'old', and that was very fitting, since the movie is a bit out-dated.
