Nicole de Boer in Trust No One (2016) (aka: Corrupt)

A.D.A. Protection Program

Assistant D.A. Kate MacIntyre (Nicole de Boer - My Mother's Secret) was working the Vargano (Steve Bacic - Undergrad Nightmare) case when two key men for the prosecution were killed by a sniper right in front of her. Terrified by the killings Kate quits her position to become a lecturer instead. But when her old boss, D.A. Frank Murphy (Andrew Moodie), asks for her help she agrees to work as a consultant alongside Frank and Greg Nealand (Peter Michael Dillon), his new assistant D.A. But Kate's return sees an increase in danger and with lives in peril Kate and Greg enter the witness protection program supervised by Det. Daniel Leaton (Scott Gibson - Amber Alert), whilst working the case. The question is will she be as safe as she thinks as Vargano seems to have some one on the inside.

"Trust No One" is one of those movies which whilst technically a thriller, thanks to the danger and mystery as to who the rat is, isn't overly thrilling. Instead what this movie is, which I should mention is also known as "Corrupt", is a processional as we watch Kate work the Vargano case whilst ending up in a lot of danger and then there is the whole mystery as to who it is working for Vargano making sure Kate finds no evidence. In many ways the USP of the movie is that Kate finds herself in lock down in a house packed with surveillance but no internet and no communication with the outside world. You know the minute she ends up there that some thing dramatic is going to happen with Kate fighting for her life.

The thing is that because "Trust No One" ends up such a processional the last thing you need is for it to be slow but that is exactly what it is. Scene after scene where they try to create tension by having the characters deliver their dialogue in a slow manner ends up making it far too pedestrian. And sadly even the likeable nature of Nicole de Boer can't lift this because her character is simply routine.

What this all boils down to is that "Trust No One" is just a routine thriller which ends up working its way to some inevitable drama with a simple guessing game when it comes to who the bad guy is when it comes to the protection of Kate.
