Directed by Monika Mitchell Brazen is a tense thriller starring Alyssa Milano, Sam Page, and Colleen Wheeler based on a novel by Nora Roberts and adapted for Netflix by Donald Martin and Edithe Swensen.
Premise: When her sister is killed and her double life as a webcam performer is revealed, Grace ignores the warnings of a cool-headed detective and gets involved in the case.
Review: Brazen has a very simple plot, and I do mean simple, your neurons don’t need to be firing at all cylinders to figure out this murder mystery plot. This movie is asking a lot from the viewer, there’s a level of suspension of disbelief needed that is above and beyond. For one, the sister of the victims is easily allowed to investigate the murder, and that’s far from being the most unrealistic thing about the film.
The story didn’t grip me, given how easy it was to figure out who the killer was that would have been next to impossible. They did try to misdirect and instill some doubts in the viewers but the effort was wasted. The acting is not always great or even good at times, however, if your expectations are low, and you’re looking for background noise, or even mind-numbing entertainment this is the movie for you.
Brazen is very simple, predictable, and thus easy to follow while doing a million other things. But it still does the job.
