Introduction to Dangerous Lies: A Netflix Movie Review by Ms. H

The events that happen in the Dangerous Lies movie, although fictional, is probably what occurs when an untruth starts and grows to seemingly present an opportune moment for some people. It looks like the struggle is real as a married couple seems to be living what they think is below their standards, until “opportunity” presents itself to them. The wife is played by Camilla Mendes as Katie and the husband is played by Jessie T. Usher as Adam.

Synopsis of the Dangerous Lies Movie

Even though the plot of getting rich sometimes by unsavory means is nothing new or original as a movie theme, I think you may like this particular story. If you watch Dangerous Lies, you may start to examine scenarios in the movie to determine if something is hidden or if there is a puzzle to be solved.  

That being said, as I watched Dangerous Lies and the events that unfolded, I for one came to my own conclusion as to who was real as depicted in the movie, as well as who was not. For example, I questioned a particular lawyer from the start and even the honesty of the wife -- even though she seemed to have a conscience somewhat --  at least at the beginning of the movie. 

Little Known Fact:  Unfortunately, this movie  probably could have fared better if well known actors played in it -- think Marriage Story that starred Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson and Stars Wars star Adam Driver.

Suspense in the Dangerous Lies Movie

There was a fair amount of suspense in the Dangerous Lies movie. If you watch the film, you probably will notice a particular twist in the story that does not play out. Without giving the movie away, it has to do with a sequence of events that happened at the beginning of the movie.This twist in the scenario was left undeveloped so I guess you will have to come to your own conclusion if the initial event was staged or actually happened.


Ending of the Dangerous Lies Movie

Spoiler Alert:  To make a long story short -- I was not quite satisfied with the ending of this movie. It seemed as if the writer realized the movie had lasted long enough so now it was time to destroy some characters, let the audience know who survived and to quickly bring the movie to a close.

Assessment of the Dangerous Lies Movie

As I alluded to previously, I believe you may enjoy watching the movie Dangerous Lies. The film is not overly long and it takes you through several scenarios where you will probably attempt  to solve a crime before the movie is over. 

The Dangerous Lies movie is almost worth a rating of 5; however, due to the underdeveloped scenarios in the movie and the rushed ending, I will have to deduct 1 ½ stars from my movie rating for this film.

By the way, in response to the question of how far the pendulum should sway from the truth, Ideally, there should be no sway at all.

Rating of the Dangerous Lies Movie

Based on a rating of 1 star to 5 stars with 5 stars being the highest, I rate the Dangerous Lies Netflix movie 3 ½ stars.
