It’s not out of the ordinary for the script of a direct-to-video film to suck. Many films manage to overcome this staple by introducing great acting, characterizations, directing, or something else to bring it up above the level of brain numbingly average. 3-Way, directed by Cruel Intentions 3’s Scott Ziehl, fails to accomplish anything. It’s neither bad nor good. It’s neither exciting nor boring. It’s neither interesting nor dull. It is, as previous stated, mind numbingly average.

The moment I saw Dominic Purcell’s face, I was kind of glad I’d chosen to pop this film in. The one season star of “John Doe,” I had kind of been wondering what had happened to him after he seeing him in the slow mindfuck feature Visitors. Here, he has a starring role as a confused criminal, Lew, who believes that he just may have murdered his cheating wife and her lover, and then dumped their bodies in the ocean, several years before. Traveling around the country to avoid the cops with his new lady friend Rita, he quietly slips into a small town. But of course, the tagline of this film promises sex, extortion, and murder, and we haven’t gotten ourselves some extortion yet!

Discovering that couple is planning a kidnapping in order to collect a ransom, Lew decides that the best way to start his new life is to save the woman (Gershon). But wait, there’s more to it. Gershon isn’t too happy about being kidnapped in the first place, and a man who has been tracking Lew shows up to get in on the action. Blandness ensues.

All I have to say is that I feel bad for Scott Ziehl. He’s not a bad director. Not great by any means, but the man deserves better than 3-Way and Cruel Intentions 3. Not only does he have a bad script to work with, but also actors that just don’t seem to care. Even Purcell, who I’m a fan of, shows why he hasn’t been doing much since the cancellation of “John Doe.” The lazy expression constantly on his face worked on the show, but here, he just makes you doze off.
DVD: Standard Direct-to-Video Release.
