      Steve D Fine but fairly forgettable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/11/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a good movie!! A must see Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Lorraine Bracco is so sexy in this Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member I actually enjoyed the movie! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member What ... a movie! The ending, had an amazing twist. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member James Belushi thinks he's in a slickly made thriller, and Lorraine Bracco made a mockery of herself with a fake, whispery voice, and dyed blonde hair. A really annoying song about cigarettes is played repeatedly in this film, and the score felt like nails on a chalkboard. One review I read about this movie from a random critic years ago actually gave the wrong spoiler - they didn't watch til the very end, which is flaky on their part but some days, I don't blame them. Traces of Red isn't something worth seeing, and is easily forgotten. How anybody could be satisfied with this movie is beyond me.
