A Perfect Thriller With A Perfect Twist,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Below Utopia [DVD] (DVD)
Before she found fame in Charmed Alyssa Milano starred in this 1997 thriller alongside Hip Hop legend Ice T and Justin Theroux, in this movie Milano plays Susanne, she and her boyfriend (Daniel) played by Justin Theroux go to his family home (a big mansion in the middle of nowhere) known as "their own little Utopia" to introduce them to his girlfriend for the first time, when they arrive they already sit at the dinner table and his family show they are quite a dysfunctional bunch.
Daniel's father tries to coax him to join the family business, which he refuses then Daniel and Susanne go to the basement to have quality time together, later on Ice T and his two buddies (including Tiny Lister) walk in and kill everyone upstairs and start to load their van with expensive paintings, Daniel and Susanne then try to find a way out without getting killed but the plot is not as straight forward as it sounds.
As for the acting Ice T plays his character well, Alyssa Milano is convincing as a scared would be victim but Justin Theroux steals the movie with his performance, if you are a Alyssa Milano (Charmed) fan, an Ice T fan and you like good thrillers with a good twist then I highly recommend this.
