Cuba Gooding Jr and Emmanuelle Vaugier star in this action thriller directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith. When Rebecca Scott (Vaugier) gets a visit from FBI agent John Nelson (Gooding Jr) informing her that her husband has been murdered, her first reaction is one of shock when she reveals that he died two years ago in a car accident. While John and Rebecca pool resources to find out why and how her husband would have faked his own death two years previously, the pair unintentionally become the target of an angry billionaire and his well-equipped army.

With Cuba Gooding Jr. playing the lead role one would expect at least a reasonably good film, but Absolute Deception is just absolutely terrible. The story line and plot as all but non-existent, the acting embarrassingly poor, the script could have been written by a teenager without talent, and then add the most annoying pling-plong music that seems to run in the background more or less throughout the film.
I suppose that someone was hoping that showing Emmanuelle Vaugier (calling this singer and model an actor would be an insult to all actors) in bikini and tight designer jeans would somehow save the film.......it doesn't!
In all honesty my impression is that the excuse for making this film must have been that Jake Goldberger (director) wanted a holiday in Australia, but just didn't want to pay for it himself. Solution - make a crap film while enjoying beautiful Australia on expenses!

In this 2013 mystery crime drama [aka: Deception and released direct to DVD in USA], widowed investigative reporter Rebecca Scott [Emmanuelle Vaugier] is informed by an FBI agent John Nelson [Cuba Gooding] that her deceased husband has just been murdered, feeling betrayed she heads for Australia to investigate, but so does Nelson.
The single disc opens to 5 trailers before going to main menu offering play, scene selection, audio [English 2.0 /5.1] and UK trailer. There are no subtitle or hard of hearing options. With too many basic flaws to overlook and the stupid decisions made, along with some dodgy special effects, it takes the edge off [lose a *]. Otherwise this is a decent enough detective story with a few good action scenes and some stunning scenery but lacks sparkle, leaving this as a reasonable **** 15 rating.

Managed to watch just 40 minutes of this very poor film. The special affects budget must have been cut before filming they are terrible but so too is the acting .
Give it a miss.

Terrible film, awful acting and unbelievable poor special effects. Cuba Gooding Jr does nothing for this film. Don't waste your time.

The second it opens it screams TV MOVIE. The storyline is quite interesting but as others have said the acting let it down and the special effects (what there are of them) are not very good at all. Glad I rented it but it certainly won't live up to anyones expectations. Suitable for Channel 5 on a weekday afternoon only

The film has all the feel, graphics, CG effects, and dialogue as a made for TV film. Dennis Archer (Ty Hungerford) is supposed to deliver information to James, an FBI agent (Cuba Gooding Jr.) but dies before it happens, although they haven't found the body. Mild manner accountant Archer had faked his death before in NY when he was married to investigative reporter Rebecca Scott (Emmanuelle Vaugier). Rebecca did an article on an Australian billionaire who is now under criminal investigation. It just so happens her ex-dead husband worked for him before he died a second time.

Rebecca goes to Australia to investigate her husband's death and ends up tagging along with Cuba Goodling jr. after his initial protest.

The script is improbable to say the least, especially the main relationship. NY driver's licenses do not require fingerprints either. The film was far too predictable to make it enjoyable. The highlight of the picture is the occasional predictable banter that goes on between Goodling and Vaugier. Save your money and wait for Lifetime to show it.

Parental Guide: no f-bombs or sex. Some distorted frosted shower scene rear nudity...and I think she was wearing a bikini on top of that.

A promising storyline that becomes very weak less than half way through. I am not that good at guessing ''whodunnit'' but as soon it was said the body couldn't be found, I pieced it together very fast. Shows you how lame was the plot. Having said that, the film itself was entertaining and there was enough suspense to keep me going.
I would recommend watching it but don't expect anything spectacular. Just an average film, good enough to pass time but lacking the wow factor and easily forgotten after it finishes.

I really enjoyed this film, it was entertaining to view and there were some parts that made me jump. I liked the fact that it jumps straight into the action almost immediately, it was not a terrible film but it was not outstanding either. I would watch this again with a friend, however after a second viewing I'd most likely not watch it again.
