Watch this if you liked: “Unfaithful”.

Scott Dylan (Frank Grillo) a wealthy New Yorker and Taylor Dolan (Jaimie Alexander) a stunning-looking new bride embark on their lavish honeymoon to Morocco. As though her middle name is promiscuity, Taylor plots to kill her rich hubby with her clandestine beau, Travis (Charlie Bewley) The 'plan' doesn't go all too well when a high-speed car chase in the desert terrain happens and the unholy trinity meets other players of the game, namely Audrey (Marie-Josee Croze), a French woman with a baby, and Omar (Moussa Maaskri), a highly wanted felon. Just as they recoup from their intersection, a new member to the gang of survivors, Saleh (Roschdy Zem), makes an entry in the name of a 'repairman' who came out of nowhere. That's when the real intersection happens.

Director-writer David Marconi, known for his screenplay for "Enemy of the State" has returned after a long hiatus of 20 years after his directorial debut to team up with Luc Besson, the manning hands of EuropaCorp Film Company. The producer-writer of an assemblage of action flicks such as "Kiss of the Dragon", "Leon: The Professional" and "The Transporter" series has once again used his signature style of rapid action in "Intersections".

Frank Grillo, who is a regular in television series such as "Silk Stalkings", "Prison Break" and "CSI" has performed well but unfortunately, Roschdy Zem stole the show. Roschdy's Saleh is a gel character with hidden agenda that is made known to the masses only towards the end. And Moussa Maaskir, the French actor who has been part of Luc Besson's other quick-bang action flicks such as "The Family" nailed his part of the most vindictive one in the gang.

Gemma Arterton was rumoured to fill in the role of Taylor Dolan, the promiscuous wife. Although her regal beauty is a notorious showstopper, having Jaimie Alexander on board was indeed a bull's eye.
The storyline unbolts with a brilliant establishing shot of the desert. Impressive camera work and remarkable cinematography set the pace and mood of the film. With Morocco as the film's predominant backdrop, music by Richard Horowitz adds to the allure of the 101 minutes of romantic thriller that has a good throw of English, Arabic and French. The theme of the movie bears a semblance of a reality television series where one by one is 'eliminated' except that this time deliberation happens at gun points.

In brief, "Intersections" is a film of the survival of the shrewdest. Colour schemes used in "Intersections" complemented the already well-represented characters. The key car crash is (very surprisingly) actually shot with just DSLRs and without the aid of any ridiculously complicating visual effects, with the end result looking dramatic in the right measure.

The plot is fairly strong and it lags a little when rich-hubby-turned-suspicious-husband (Scott Dylan) and Audrey coughed up the truths. It could have been done in better taste and the scale of tension would have been turned up by a notch or two especially when the beans were spilled in the heat of the Sahara. The plot which basically centres on the deceptive game is taken from the sandy wasteland to the port city of Essaouira, an exotic setting towards the climax and loose ends were tied up.

Scope-wise, "Intersections" is Lawrence of Arabia-meets-Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. Plot-wise it is more of Survivor-meets-Cairo Time.
