Her mentor John Mills is proud of Jessica as a father would be of his daughter, since Mills was the partner of Jessica’s late father. With a newly established promotion, Jessica finds that she might once again have to prove herself in a department that takes no prisoners. Not to mention a new partner named Mike Delmarco, who might be Jessica’s next closest thing to a confidant. However, a man has been found dead and the two officers are brought into the investigation. What they find is a surprise when the dead in question was a man Jessica slept with, he being part of a list of one night stands that Jessica has engaged in. Now under suspicion and a terrible drinking problem gnawing at her, Jessica will have to prove to her superiors and to her skeptical partner that she’s not the one behind the murders and Mills is one of the few people standing behind her. This is a story about a woman trying to find the perpetrator of these horrible crimes, before she herself might end as one of them.
Plot: Recently promoted and transferred to the homicide division, Inspector Jessica Shepard feels pressure to prove herself — and what better way than by solving San Francisco’s latest murder? However, as Shepard and her partner, Mike Delmarco, soon discover, the victim shared a romantic connection to her. As more of Shepard’s ex-lovers turn up dead, her mind starts to become unstable, and she begins to wonder if she could be the very killer she’s trying to track down.

It has all Of the elements but……
To hear Director Philip Kaufman tell it, “Twisted” was supposed to be the best film noire picture since the classics of the 40s. Not so. It has most of the elements of film noire..the dark lighting, the darkened streets and a murder mystery. But it doesn’t quite work.
Officer Jessica Shepard (Ashley Judd) is a kick ass police officer who has just been promoted to Homicide Inspector. Now it seems that the comely young officer also has a penchant for violent behavior and one night stands. Her mentor is none other than Police Commissioner John Mills (Samuel L. Jackson) who has raised her and nurtured her career following the tragic deaths of her parents some years earlier.
Shepard’s new partner turns out to be Mike Delmarco (Andy Garcia) whom she had unknowingly met the previous evening during a party at a bar in her honor. Suddenly, Jessica’s one night lovers begin turning up dead, brutally beaten. At the same time, she has been experiencing blackouts immediately before the murders. She then begins to suspect that she may be responsible.
Sounds good huh? I though so too but on watching it I guessed who the murderer was almost right away. This took away any suspense the director was trying to build by placing suspicion on other characters. We do get some nice shots of San Francisco though.
The petite Ashley Judd is just not convincing as a tough love ’em and leave ’em cop. She does her best work in the psychological scenes where she comes unraveled at the thought that she may be murdering these men. Jackson does the best he can with limited material. He is off screen more than he is on. I thought that his character could have been fleshed out a little more. Garcia, playing an Italian again, does what he can with his role. TV’s Camryn Manheim puts in a appearance as the forensic examiner Lisa.
Not nearly as good as Director Philip Kaufman would have you believe.
Not as bad as I expected…
**POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW**
Twisted is by NO means perfect, and it’s pretty clichéd…but it’s not as bad as I expected it to be. When this was first released in theaters, I would’ve been the first in line to see it, until I read all of the horrible reviews. I felt Samuel L Jackson’s performance was wasted here….he’s capable of SO MUCH more, as we know. Andy Garcia was OK, and Judd was her usual self. Her performance reminded me a lot, almost too much, of Jolie’s performance in the TERRIBLE ‘Taking Lives’…it had the same premise. Judd’s character is a very troubled, extremely promiscuous woman….that came across as tasteless to me. The ‘twist’ at the end was totally predictable to me…I was the only one between all my friends who guessed who the bad guy was, they all had someone else as the killer.
This movie wasn’t straight out BAD…like ‘Taking Lives’ or ‘In The Cut’ bad. It had a lot of potential, and its by no means great. It’s a mediocre film that had me entertained for about 2 hours; a typical whodunit, and I didn’t mind playing the game. Not too bad, not too good.
**1/2 out of **** stars.
