Fails to Seduce

Ally Sheedy in Client Seduction (2014)

Lawyer Melissa Eco (Ally Sheedy) is extremely good at her job; unfortunately her rebellious daughter Abby (Annie Clark) is not impressed with her mum who is now known as the go to lawyer for the rich and guilty. It is why after yet another argument between her and her daughter over a guilty client she got off that Melissa seeks out a client who isn't rich and who in fact is innocent but facing trial and so comes to the aid of Greg Milles (Rhys Ward) who is charged along with his friend Dennis (Erik Knudsen) of murder. But soon things seem to be unravelling for Melissa when she not only begins to doubt Greg's innocence but discovers that Abby has been secretly hanging around with Greg who has got her to do some illegal things so that he can blackmail Melissa.

Annie Clark has attention grabbing eyes, so does Erik Knudsen whilst Rhys Ward has that pretty bad boy thing going on and then there is Ally Sheedy who has this look on her face which screams how did I end up in this TV movie. I found myself asking that question as Ally Sheedy deserves to be in better movies than this sort of made for TV movie which ends up all about the pretty actors rather than what is going on.

Rhys Ward in Client Seduction (2014)

Now in fairness as "Client Seduction" started, which sounds more like some sort of an adult service; I wondered where it was going, what was going to be catch 22 which found Melissa in danger along with her daughter. It was obvious that her daughter would be in trouble because when you start this sort of movie with a daughter rebelling against their mother you know that come the end a close encounter with danger will straighten her out and bring her back in to her mother's welcoming arms. But what was going to be the mystery surrounding Greg. Sadly the mystery was nonsense, riddled with plot holes and contrivances and is basically ridiculous.

The knock on effect is that whilst for a while "Client Seduction" hooks with wondering where it is going to go it then becomes about the characters, their looks, their sort of charisma, well sort of but it makes it weak for anyone wanting anything close to thrills and excitement.

What this all boils down to is that "Client Seduction" ends up a disappointment, a shallow thriller with a weak premise and a cast which may appeal to a younger audience due to their looks but little for those seeking real drama.
