Perfect date movie .............
21 October 2013 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

This "Payback" film has a severe identity crisis. What starts out as a slam bang prison escape movie, suddenly morphs into a smarmy romance of epic proportions. Your girlfriend will swoon as Corey Michael Eubanks courts Teresa Blake throughout the interminable middle of "Payback". Such thrilling seduction rituals as midnight swims, horseback riding, and romantic dinners spew forth in what is supposed to be a tale of sweet revenge. With Michael Ironside and Don Swayze on board you might be tempted to give this one a try, however you most definitely will have to sit through at least a bunch of yawns between the prison break and the vengeful outcome. - MERK
