Surveillance – Movie Review
Starring: Billy Burke, Pell James, Bill Pullman, Julia Ormand, Ryan Simpkins, French Stewart, Cheri Oteri It’s been a hell of a day on the highway. When Federal Officers Elizabeth Anderson and Sam Hallaway arrive at Captain Billing’s office, they have three sets of stories to figure out and a string of vicious murders to consider. One zealot cop, a strung out junkie and an eight year old girl all sit in testimony to the roadside rampage, but as the Feds begin to expose the fragile little details each witness conceals so carefully with a well practiced lie, they soon discover that uncovering “the truth” can come at a very big cost.
“Surveillance” is one of those movies that you question why it was made at all. It got a great cast. Julie Ormond is in it, as is Bill Pullman, and if I tell you what it’s about it, it’s going to be even more confusing. It’s bloody. It’s unpleasant. It’s mean-spirited. Smarmy. This is a one-star movie that you should absolutely miss.
