Ray and Lisa are soul mates and on the night of their engagement Ray collapses and has to be hospitalised. He falls into a coma and is told that if he is to live he must have a heart transplant. When it looks like all hope is lost a donor is found. After the transplant it looks like a whole new beginning for the couple and it certainly is as when Ray comes around from the operation he is behaving like an entirely new person and having flashbacks about a life that is not his own.
I thought Francis Duru played his role well. My favourite scene of his was when he was fighting with the ghost. You could see the panic and fear expressed in his body and eyes. His breathing pace changed. It was believable and you were pulled into his fear of this ghost.
Biola Ige was ruining this movie for me. If she must be there I say have her not speaking. It was painful. I saw no improvement from the other times I have seen her. Her acting is so basic and unconvincing. She shouts to show anger, over exaggerates emotions and shows nothing in her eyes. She just goes through the emotions and doesn’t immerse herself in the character. Biola is clearly there to be eye candy. Two girls living alone and she comes from her bedroom in sexy nightwear with her cleavage popping out. As if!
Part 1 is pretty non eventful. There are a lot of draggy scenes. In one scene after we see Emma and Sam arguing the non eventfulness seems to last forever. We hear piano playing and then Sam sitting still for an eternity. I made a phone call. I made a cup of coffee and the dude was still sitting there. Oh the tediousness! Part 1 was a waste of time; it should have been 20 minutes maximum play time. Added to that, there is a lot of kissy kissy between Emma and Sam. Biola and John slobbing all over each other was just gross and not sexy at all!
I would not recommend this movie because Part 1 was just too much of a chore. It started to get better in Part 2 but then I didn’t have part 3 and I certainly won’t be going to look for it either. The story line was interesting but the execution was just poor. THUMBS DOWN.
