SOMETIMES OBSESSION CAN BE MURDER.
London psychologist Michael Glass (David Morrissey) reluctantly takes on the psychopathic Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone) who is suspected of another killing. The sequel tries to be more clever than cheap; it has nice London locations and respected actors such as Morrissey, David Thewlis and Charlotte Rampling. Stone is in marvelous shape, even though her character is more annoying this time. In the end though, the story won’t fool anyone and the sex is not as memorable as in the original.
