Review Slow Burn is the kind of elaborately plotted and unrealistic thriller for which the term "suspension of disbelief" was invented. Buying into its numerous plot twists depends on several unlikely assumptions, the most contrived of which is that the people in the movie will behave in ways that go against their own self-interest in order to make a better story for you, the viewer. The illegal scheme at the core of the film is so needlessly complicated and risky that no criminal with a brain would actually try it, and throughout Slow Burn characters who we've been told are at the top of their professions--an ace district attorney, an elusive gangster, etc.--make dumb mistakes just so that the plot can keep moving forward. Yet that plot is, in its own way, rather satisfying, and the uniformly solid performances and fast pace make Slow Burn a very entertaining B-movie...Ultimately, Slow Burn will probably play better at home, where its strengths will be more evident when compared with the less clever and more amateurishly acted variations on the same themes that clog up late-night premium cable line-ups...It's a movie that has to be accepted on its own somewhat modest terms to work, but if one can suspend that pesky disbelief for ninety minutes, it's an awful lot of fun.
