He's Watching (2018) (aka: My Ex is Watching | A Focus to Kill)

Asset Managing

Life is going well for Angela (Linsey Godfrey) as not only she dating her perfect man but she is in line for a partnership at the wealth management firm she works for. Then out of the blue Kyle (Tilky Jones - Open Marriage) shows up wanting Angela to manage his money. Kyle and Angela dated back in college and whilst he wanted to marry her she wanted to focus on her career. Since then he has not only become a famous photographer but a wealthy one at that. Before long Angela finds herself in an affair with Kyle but when she begins to question what is going on things in the other parts of her life starts to go terribly wrong. The question is: who is behind it all?

Well, if you value your time my advice would be not to bother with "He's Watching", which I have come across also called "My Ex is Watching" and "A Focus to Kill". That isn't because it is a bad movie, in truth this is a straight down the middle average Lifetime movie, but that is the reason. This movie which sees Angela ending up romantically involved with an ex only for her life to start falling to bits when she ends things is so routine you can pretty much work out where it is going to go after the set up is in place.

Here is another way I could put this; the most memorable thing about "He's Watching" is not the characters, the actors or what happens. Nope the most memorable aspects are the location set ups from the interior of a stunningly modern house to the candles on a set of wooden stairs. These scenes are a little too picture perfect but they end up the best thing about the movie.

What this all boils down to is that "He's Watching" is a middle of the road Lifetime movie which won't deliver much in the way of surprises for anyone who ends up watching it. Although for a while you might find yourself wondering what the connection is to the movie's opening flashback scene to 1997.
