Just awful
11 April 2016 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

I just cannot stand films that rely on an irritating and constant music score to create suspense when the actual films suspense is non- existent because the plot is so predictable. I have never, and I mean never, seen a film which gives away their own ending and spoils any mystery within the very first five minutes as the Reluctant Witness achieved.

The lead actress Mia Kirshner plays Erin Villeneuve but that is only her fake identity name that the FBI gives her since they placed her in their witness protection program. You see Erin is actually Melissa Kirk who provides sufficient evidence to put her real husband Chicago gangster Jimmy Kirk away for good.

Within the first five minutes of the film Erin and her brand new husband nice guy and a totally in the dark dummy named Levon Villeneuve (played by Bruce Ramsay) at their wedding are introduced to Levon's sister's Katrin new boyfriend named Warren Cooper who just happens to be a born and bred Chicago boy who immediately asks Erin if she has ever been to Chicago. Duhhhhh?

The movie was all downhill from here and as I am a sucker for seeing a film through to the bitter end the film could not have disappointed me any more than by giving away the entire plot within the first five minutes. To add insult to injury Erin has a daughter named Becky who is swayed by the evil-doer dumb dumb of a dad Warren who convinces Becky that they are going to be a family again, even though Erin just got re-married. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree eh?

So the music score valiantly tries to add suspense while we the audience are left to imagine who Erin (alias for Melissa) will choose to be with. There is absolutely no value to this film and as such I rate it the minimum 1 out of 10.

Plain awful 1/10
