The problem with making a sequel to "Basic Instinct" is that faced by any effort to have lightning strike twice. You have to do it again but do it differently, a fine line to try and walk. Actually, the script by Leora Barish ("Desperately Seeking Susan) and Henry Bean ("Internal Affairs") come up with something that does the job, the only problem is you are not aware of this until the movie is over and you have to rethink everything you have just seen. This creates a new problem, in that you actually have to watch this movie twice to determine how good it is because nobody is going to be able to judge retroactively if they pulled it off the first time you watch the film. This is a significant problem because there are people who are not going to want to see "Basic Instinct 2" once, let alone twice.Read more ›
Though it took many years to formulate and approve the whole thing, "Basic Instinct 2" ends up being a messy, halfhearted effort that smacks of "direct to video." Except, sadly, it wasn't -- instead, it has been one of the most atrocious box office disasters of 2006 thus far. Both creatively and financially.
Novelist Catherine Trammell (Sharon Stone, still trying to revive her career) is doing 110 mph while having sex. They splash off a bridge, and her soccer star lover dies. In the aftermath, a court shrink (David Morrisey) tries to determine if she is sane or not -- and ends up with the sultry killer salivating for him as her next victim/lover. Take this as a warning, guys: Practice safe sex. By that, I mean don't date a woman with risk addiction.
Then the dead bodies start piling up around London, and it seems likely that Catherine is the culprit. Fascinated by Catherine, Glass soon becomes enmeshed as a murder suspect, and it means trouble for his ex wife and her boyfriend. Like Catherine's prior victims, the unwitting shrink is lured into a game of seduction and death.
The plot is too similar to the original for there to be many surprises in "Basic Instinct 2," although it's rather interesting to relocate the action to London. And as this movie starts to wind up with a shrink and a car crash, it seems that it might actually be worth watching while sober.
Then it deteriorates into a meandering waffle.Read more ›
David Morrissey is Dr. Michael Glass, a widely respected criminal psychologist that is brought in to consult on Tramell’s involvement in a death where her own life was at risk. Finally, there is a relentless homicide detective that is determined to convict Tramell, yet his hands are not clean, a respected journalist wrote an expose describing him as a ruthless, dirty cop.
The bodies start piling up, yet logical motives for all of their deaths are advanced for all three of the major players. There is one death where the killing is viewed, but that one is only within the context of the overall complexity of the plot and does not resolve any of the primary crimes.
Sharon Stone is once again smoking hot as the ultimate seductress, there are a few scenes where I am sure millions of men have hit rewind several times to view them again and again. The key to enjoying this thriller is in the pondering of the sudden and subtle plot twists, where you think you know the killer, yet enough ambiguity is suddenly introduced so that you are now faced with the viewer equivalent of reasonable doubt. It is a great movie, the facial expressions of Dr. Glass in the last scene are a great use of facial expressions to hint at the truth.

This move is fair to me because it has Sharon Stone. Even most people think this movie is rotten but I do not agree with their opinions. Read morePublished on Nov. 21 2009 by Kevin Barton
