(RoRo, FeFeFe, AP, C, B, LLL, VV, SS, NN, AA, MM) Strong Romantic worldview with very strong feminist elements with an undercurrent that seems to attack traditional masculinity, including the role of providing for one’s wife and that even almost seems to question the strict discipline of the Marine Corps, but quotes from Psalm 23 during a funeral led by a Christian pastor and a murderer is finally stopped and gets his just desserts (which is death – at least for first degree murderers like this – see Numbers 35:31); about 41 obscenities (including a few “f” words), one GD and five light profanities; strong violence includes man crashes into train when his brake lines are cut and his car is shown hurtling toward a car sitting at the tracks with two people hurt who are later seen being ministered to at an ambulance, man angrily chokes woman, man hits woman, and women use knives to defend themselves against abusive man; partially depicted sexual activity as engaged woman takes off her top in make-out session with man engaged to her best friend and rich man lives with one girlfriend after he ditches other live-in girlfriend when he catches her cheating one him and a couple other sexual comments; partial upper female nudity in one scene and upper male nudity in other scenes; alcohol use and man seems somewhat tipsy; no smoking or drugs; and, cheating and strong theme of jealousy leading to uncontrollable rage.


Summary:

N-SECURE is a low-budget drama about a successful businessman who’s jealousy leads to murder and attempted murder. The acting in N-SECURE varies from good to serviceable, but the other production values are pretty bad, and the movie lacks a more positive moral center for media-wise viewers.


Review:

N-SECURE is a low-budget drama with poor production values, though the acting varies from serviceable to good. The script could also use a little tightening.
At first, you’re not sure if this movie is going to be a comedy or a drama, but it gets more and more dramatic as it goes along.
David Washington, who runs a successful computer business, treats his secretary and his live-in girlfriend, Robin, like they’re his slaves. Robin has always been poor, so she agrees to marry David, though she doesn’t love him. Meanwhile, Robin’s best friend Jill gets a proposal from her boyfriend, Isaac.
The day before Robin’s wedding, however, Jill and David catch Robin and Isaac fooling around. Jill cannot forgive Robin or Isaac. And, the insanely jealous David doesn’t believe Robin when she says she never had intercourse with David. He also decides to use the honeymoon tickets to the Caribbean with his secretary’s beautiful cousin, Tina.
Then, David cuts the break lines to Isaac’s car, and Isaac gets killed running into a speeding train. And, David gets increasingly possessive and jealous of his new girlfriend, Tina. Meanwhile, Robin finds out she’s pregnant by David, but he doesn’t believe her. Will anyone stop David from murdering Tina, Robin and Robin’s baby too?
There are a couple jokes in the beginning of N-SECURE that make viewers think it’s a comedy. Wrong! The movie turns into a murder drama, with the villain being a violent control freak.
The acting in N-SECURE varies from good to serviceable. The production values are pretty terrible, however, and the script needs some cutting or reworking.
Although the story is one of good versus evil, the movie seems to have a Romantic, feminist worldview. In the world of N-SECURE, masculinity seems to be the villain. The villain is the one man who seems loyal to his girlfriend and is willing and able to take care of her every need. He’s just a bit “psychotic” about what he demands in return. His rage eventually turns to murder and attempted murder. At the end, it seems as if none of the women need any men whatsoever because they have each other.
N-SECURE also contains excessive foul language (including about 41 obscenities) and brief partial sexual nudity in one scene. It also thinks nothing of romantic couples living together or unmarried couples going away on a weekend together. This worldview problem is what finally pushes the movie over the edge in terms of unacceptability (Minus 3 “Excessive” and Minus 4 “Abhorrent” ratings).
