Nicole de Boer in Trust No One (2016) (aka: Corrupt)

A.D.A. Protection Program

Assistant D.A. Kate MacIntyre (Nicole de Boer - Cradle of Lies) was working the Vargano (Steve Bacic - Stolen Daughter) case when two key men for the prosecution were taken out by a sniper right in front of her. It all becomes too much for her and so she quits her position to become a lecturer instead. When her old boss, D.A. Frank Murphy (Andrew Moodie) asks for her help she agrees to work as a consultant alongside Frank and his new assistant D.A. Greg Nealand (Peter Michael Dillon). But Kate's return sees an increase in danger and with lives in peril Kate and Greg enter the witness protection program supervised by Det. Daniel Leaton (Scott Gibson) whilst building the case. The question is will she be as safe as she thinks as Vargano seems to have some one on the inside.

"Trust No One" is one of those movies which whilst technically a thriller, thanks to the danger and mystery as to who the rat is, it isn't overly thrilling. Instead what this movie is, which I should mention is also known as "Corrupt", is a processional as we watch Kate work the case whilst she ends up in a lot of danger and the whole mystery of who it is who is working for Vargano and needs to make sure Kate finds no evidence. In many ways the USP of the movie is that Kate finds herself in lock down in a house packed with surveillance but no internet and no communication with the outside world. You know the minute she ends up here that some thing dramatic is going to happen there with Kate probably fighting for her life.

The thing is that because "Trust No One" ends up a bit of processional the last thing you need is for it to be slow but that is exactly what it is. Scene after scene where they try to create tension by having the characters deliver their dialogue in a slow manner ends up making this often feel pedestrian. And sadly even the likeable nature of Nicole de Boer can't lift this because her character is simply routine.

What this all boils down to is that "Trust No One" is just a routine thriller which ends up working its way to some inevitable drama with a simple guessing game when it comes to who the person who is dirty when it comes to the protection of Kate.
