    A sly, refreshingly grown-up gay entertainment, though rather less satisfying as a thriller.

    Director Ron Oliver applies a thin veneer of straight-to-cable pseudo-gloss without finding a workable tone, and the cast lacks the charisma and chemistry to make the genre and gender-bending register as more than novelty.

    So grimly determined to be even-handed that it never generates tension.
  4. Shock to the System demonstrates that merely subverting genre conventions doesn't quite make for compelling entertainment.
