Picks and Pans Review: The Last Wave
Richard Chamberlain, in his post-Kildare years, has ranged from Hamlet to NBC's Centennial. He is, however, all but swamped by this farfetched Australian voodoo saga about a corporate tax lawyer who becomes obsessed with a murder case involving urbanized aboriginal tribesmen. The heavy-handedness and clichéd dialogue make the film seem rather like a made-for-TV throwaway. Olivia Hammett, a product of Aussie TV, gives a fine performance as the attorney's patient wife, and Chamberlain has his sturdy moments—as when he discovers he's literally some sort of shaman of doomsday. Recommended only for those moviegoers who are deeply into aboriginal culture or the occult. (PG)
