Perfect Stranger (2007) R - 4 Stars

I really like this movie and add Halle Berry to my list of top actors. I don't think I've seen one movie she wasn't good in and this movie is no exception. The movie takes a lot of dynamic twist towards the end that I don't want to give too many details away.

Rowena Price (Halle Berry) is an investigative reporter trying to catch corrupt individuals and their wrong doings. Her childhood friend Grace (Nicki Aycox) comes to her with a story of Harrison Hill (Bruce Wills) a top ad executive with his own ad agency, whom Grace has been having an affair with and now is being blackmailed. Before Rowena has a chance to get to the story, Grace is found murdered.

Rowena vows to bring this killer to justice. Harrison is a big wig who feels he is above the law and Rowena must find a way to take him down. With the help of her loyal friend Miles (Giovanni Ribisi), she goes undercover posing as a temp employee, Katherine, and gets a job at Harrison's agency. She also goes on-line posing as a girl named Veronica, to flirt with Harrison and find out where his limits are. She'll stop at nothing to avenge Grace's death and take this play boy down. Through a twisted maze of blackmail and mind boggling turns, Rowena and Harrison test each others limits.
