Blackheart ★★ 1998 (R)

A pair of con artists have their scam down—the seductive Annette (Alonso) picks up wealthy men, then Ray (Grieco) steps in, roughs them up, and takes their cash. Things get messy when they learn of a young woman (Loewi) who has yet to learn of an enormous inheritance, and Ray steps into the role of seducer. Although the film runs out of steam in the last 20 minutes, Grieco and Loewi are likeable in the lead roles. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Maria Conchita Alonso, Richard Grieco, Fiona Loewi, Christopher Plummer; D: Dominic Shiach; W: Brock Simpson, Brad Simpson; C: Ousama Rawi.
