To Seduce an Enemy (2003)

Summary: Next time I'll listen...
Brian Thibodeau summed up the reasons to skip this movie in his review which under usual circumstances would be more than enough warning. But since I am putting together a blog on Teresa Mak I watched "To Seduce an Enemy" in the interests of complete coverage. Big mistake. This movie is every bit as bad as Brian says it is. It is so bad that a "slow and gauzy" lesbian sex scene in which Teresa Mak shows Winnie Leung how to seduce someone was almost boring--it was one of the few scenes that I didn't watch with the DVD player at 2X or 3X speeds. The problem with watching a bad movie quickly is that it doesn't make the experience any better.

Every bit of it is bad--one example happened very early in the movie. A woman has been sent to kill someone--she finds him in his office, gets him to the couch, straddles him (while wearing her overcoat and apparently nothing else although we have to infer that) and stabs him quite a few times. It was one of memorable scenes from "Basic Instinct", the movie that made Sharon Stone a star. Here it is obvious--really, really obvious--that the murderer isn't even close to her victim although the couch would have had to be restuffed afterwards.

Avoid this one.
