This post for Dangerous Lies contains minor spoilers.

Dangerous Lies (2020, directed by Michael M. Scott) follows the story of a couple—Katie (Camila Mendes) and Adam (Jessie T. Usher)—who find themselves being given an unexpected fortune. 

Granted that the movie is called Dangerous Lies, but the two words are however not interlinked with one another, as lying does happen but the danger comes from elsewhere. Much of the movie is an extreme cringefest, as the writer tries to create a mystery-centric plot in the movie’s 97-minute long runtime. And it’s also not helpful that the actors Usher and Mendes are not impressive in the roles they were cast to play.

The most exciting bit of the movie only happens in the last 5 minutes when, quite literally, three people are shot dead. An unimpressive plot twist is also revealed at the end, and it was definitely written to compensate for the movie’s underwhelming characters and overall story.

Give this a miss, especially if you like Mendes because I’m sure you don’t want to see Veronica Lodge running errands while wearing denim.
