Movie trailer review: Slow Burn

Slow Burn stars Ray Liotta as a political hopeful who finds himself in a web of lies, murder, sex and deceit. Jolene Blalock, who someone has never been discovered before, is scorchingly hot in a very exotic way as an assistant district attorney who is either really good or really bad. She kills a man in self defense, but is it really self defense? LL Cool J also stars in Slow Burn.
The movie trailer is adequate, but presents Slow Burn as essentially a thriller that could easily be forgotten. Ray Liotta is amazingly hit-or-miss with his films, and lately tends to miss. The payoff could be good, if Slow Burn adequately handles what could be a complicated plot, a sexy lead female... a.k.a. a new Fatal Attraction. Or it could end up being a jumbled mess that is trying to bank on the fact that it has a sexy lead female who looks like she sleeps with just about every man in the movie. There's nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't make a movie.
Overall, the movie trailer is decent, but the marketing department certainly could have constructed the scenes they have a little better. More about Slow Burn.
