Susan Dey offers a standout performance in a movie that's unfortunately burdened with stock characters and mediocre dialogue. In her role as a TV ad model chased by a murderous conglomerate, she projects some of the charm and sensitivity that won her fans in L.A. Law a few years later. Given that many of the models in this movie are reduced to disposable bimbos, Dey brings a good deal more intelligence than (probably) her role originally required.
Leigh Taylor-Young also brings a commanding and intelligent presence to her role as a villain alongside James Coburn.
This movie has strong redeeming moments: An auto chase and a variety of burglaries are done in highly innovative fashion, Coburn is excellent as a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde CEO, Finney is low key in his male-hero come-to-the-rescue role, and the technologies (sans hypnosis) all too real. Unfortunately, some viewers may be offended at the movie's superficial and violently misogynistic portrayal of female actors.
Make no mistake, the dialogue in this movie is a bit schmaltzy, the TV ads are laughably bad, and a key question is unresolved: While it's clear that sexy models are being digitized and animated to achieve perfect on-screen performance in typically expensive TV commercials, we never learn why Coburn and Taylor-Young are murdering the models.
Nevertheless, the movie smartly analyzes the values underlying television ad production and the potential for forgery of what we see and hear on TV shows of any kind.Read more ›
