"Sleepwalking and knives do not mix." - a review by timchuma

Maggie goes to pick up her boyfriend Andy from the airport. Before she meets him, she notices him with another woman and he seems anxious when they get home.

Maggie's friend Tammy, a police officer, gives her tips on how to find out about what he is up to.

The next day she goes to meet Andy after work and finds him arguing with his boss. Back at home again, Andy seems nervous and wants to go out, but Maggie stays home.

During the night, two things happen: Andy's boss is killed and Maggie is seen sleepwalking carrying a dirty kitchen knife.

Tammy and her fellow officers turn up to question Andy, but leave when he explains his alibi. However, a man on the street says he saw Maggie carrying a knife, so they go back to get her (right after Maggie asks Tammy to be her bridesmaid).

There is another murder in a carpark under similar circumstances to the first. This time the victim is the half sister of a rich businesswoman named Sharon Li. She is questioned, but let off.

Soon after, Andy and Maggie are walking down the street when Sharon pulls up in a sportscar and asks Andy for directions. Back at home, Maggie learns that Sharon passed something to Andy when she pulled in in the car, and she gets upset. From there it gets a lot more complicated...

This movie was OK I guess (especially considering the movie I saw it with). The main problem is that it doesn't really seem to make enough use of the characters and settings to make the movie really engaging. (Special mention must go to the movie poster, which is really nice and the reason I saw the movie in the first place.)

timchuma gives this movie 6 out of 10.
