FATALE
Rated: R

Clint Says: Wait for the digital release
 
 

Three decades ago a movie came out called Fatal Attraction. It was a huge hit and ended up getting six Oscar nominations. Now, 33 years later, this movie comes along with an almost identical plot. And while this film is decent, it doesn't hold a candle to the original.

 
There is nothing overtly wrong or bad about this movie, it's just not amazing. It's one of those that you see and after it's over you say, "that was fine for what it was."
 
It does have a few moments of suspense, and a few elements of surprise and mystery, but not enough to make it a memorable film. The acting is fine, the story is interesting, but formulaic, and it doesn't run so long as to wear out its welcome. But it never has that big moment that makes you say "wow".
 
If you want to support the theaters, you won't be disappointed spending money to see this, but you'll feel better about it if you just wait until it comes out digitally.
