Sweet Killing , a really good Canadian film !
13 June 2001 | by hectorpeachSee all my reviews

I rented "Sweet Killing" a year ago. I didn't know if i'd like the film but I did. I give it 4 of 5 stars. I film is about a middle edged man , Adam Cross (Anthony Higgins) , a hard working business man . Except he has one problem , his annoying wife. Living in a world of comics and fiction , he decides to kill his shrewish wife , and make it look like a brake in murder. He goes threw with his plan , and it goes fine , until he meets the love of his life (played by Leslie Hope) , and a couple of crooked cops (Canadian actors Aron Tager , and Michael Ironside) who will go to any lengths to get this guy blamed for the murder. Suddenly what Adam thought would be his escape from torture turns into a "no-exit" highway to Hell.

I have to say that this is an interesting story , with a great cast

(Michael Ironside , Anthony Higgins , and "Are You Afraid Of The Dark's" Aron Tager) and a good plot. Since I am a big fan of canadian films.
