Strong cast, weak film
17 October 2004 | by HarrietZSee all my reviews

Watching "when danger follows you home", I felt that there was a very strong team of actors, delivering high emotion with their characters emotions and reacting very spontaneously within conversations. (Excepting one part where there seems to be a pause in conversation as JoBeth Williams waits for her pager to bleep.)I was especially impressed by the performance of Gogol (Michael Manasseri) acting a mentally disturbed patient. Apart from the acting though, I felt the storyline was mediocre, and not gripping enough to maintain suspense, especially with the murderer being too obvious from the onset. I felt the music score was not subtle enough, as I was constantly aware of it, and seemed very corny.

All in all, I wouldn't specifically advise people either way on whether to watch the film, but I did get an entertainment value out of it
