Slow film...mixed feelings about it,
This review is from: Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of Marriage [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I thought the film progressed slowly, not necessarily the story line but rather the acting. I know Kim K was supposed to be the ditsy office assistant type, but found her role quite exaggerated. The film actually picked up pace when we got nearer the ending, but by that time I had already predicted what was going to happen - I wasn't surprised. Equally, I guess it wasn't a suspense/thriller, but more of a moral message type of story.
Positives include the ability for such a story to make us reflect on our own relationships and think about what both men and women can miss in relationships. For men: How sometimes a woman can be taken for granted by a man that doesn't realise the importance of romancing her continually and appreciating who she is forever (till death do us part guys!). Gentleman, romance her to continually keep her. Not all women will be impressed by some rich Lothario, but they can lose themselves in their work/children/friends/drama and that man would have still "lost" his wife to other things (on a less extreme note!).
Women: Insecurity can make us do shocking things! Not knowing who we are is an issue. This leads to allowing smooth words and intense stares from seemingly mysterious men rule our emotions and consequently, our decisions in relationships.
Its so important for women to have an acute awareness of their own worth and capabilities, so that we don't feel that another person has to give that to us. Our worth should not be based solely on superficial things (And if you are a Christian, this should be based on what God says about you, not the world).
Overall, acting was a little poor (what made me cringe the most was Judith's "intense sexy stare"), message was ok...this film would definitely stimulate debate and strong opinions which is great!
