Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

Bloodline

BB.5

(out of 5)


A pharmaceutical tycoon is murdered on a ski trip, leaving his entire fortune and control of his company to his daughter (). She takes on this great responsibility in the face of her grief, but when a few precarious experiences come her way she begins to realize that her father’s death was not an accident but foul play, the actions of a killer now intent on getting her as well. Enter detective  who begins to link her dangerous situation with a recent string of prostitute murders. Based on a Sidney Sheldon novel, this film has all the tacky trappings of melodramas set among the jet-savvy, but it’s no Airport ’79. Hepburn’s classy performance and the host of celebrities in the cast, including , ,  and  make it as much fun to watch as it is shallow and silly, plus the seventies-era fashions are terrific.
