Deceived (1991) Review

Adrienne Saunders is left devastated after the death of her husband Jack, even more so when she finds out that he had two names and another life!

⭐️⭐️⭐️

Everything seems perfect for Adrienne and Jack, an amazing couple a young daughter and quite frankly look what everyone would aspire to have. His job is important but when some ancient Egyptian jewellery causes a murder to happen in a museum it doesn’t take long before Jack is also murdered (or is he?)

The film attempts to have some twists and turns which are a little bit obvious really but that doesn’t take away a whole lot from the overall film as it was at a good enough pace.

It is a typical early 90s film that’s for sure and the main reason I have gone for the three star rating is because Goldie Hawn is absolutely brilliant in the film. Going from the grieving widow to a woman fully on a mission when everything turns a different way. Showing just why she has so many roles in the 1980s and 1990s, she really is such a good actress being able to fully carry a film like this one. Another big star of this era was John Heard, seriously he was more than just the Dad in Home Alone I promise! Sorry just showing my age with that reference in terms of that is the first film I remember him from so that’s where I always see him no matter how many other performances I see.

Managing to make you so angry at times and pretty much hate how men think they can just do what they want and get away with it. Although I guess it all works out rather nicely for that in the end!
