Woulda Coulda Shoulda
14 October 2009 | by KashmirgreySee all my reviews

Crush had enough going for it that it could have been a decent and original femme fatale film with its supernatural spin. Unfortunately, despite the rave reviews, it's a very limp flick.

Julian (played by Heath Ledger/Ryan Phillippe wanna-be Christopher Egan) has a lot going for him; a scholarship studying architecture, a loving girlfriend, and a blossoming martial arts hobby. When he agrees to house sit an upscale home in suburban Australia, he meets Anna (Emma Lung) and decides to put it all on the line by bedding her down. Of course it is no surprise that when Julian tries to have his cake and eat it too, Anna isn't too keen on the idea wanting him all to herself.

Sound familiar? Well it is. Where it had the potential to be frightening it fails comically. Part of its problem is that Egan's acting is so shallow the audience doesn't give two hoots for the guy and his self imposed peril. In fact, I found myself cheering for the villain, actually sympathizing with her that she would desire such a twit.

Spare yourself some grief and rent Fatal Attraction. Even if you have already seen it, a second or even third viewing will be far more engaging than this fodder.
