The PR David Goodman (Edward Furlong) expects to be promoted in theagency where he works but he loses the opportunity to his colleagueTony (Tobias Mehler). While upset at home with his wife Lisa (ChandraWest), David sees a man near his car; when he approaches, the strangersprays some chemicals on his face and David becomes blind. Later Davidreceives a message in his answering machine with the proposal of Dr.Guillermo List (Michael Madsen) for recovering his vision and he offersanything to regain his sight. Dr. List gives an ancient cane with adevil face to David that recovers his eyesight but is possessed by anevil demon, ascending in his career but with a high-price.<br><br>"Canes" is really a bad movie: first there are many stories of evilcovenants or secret societies; therefore the plot is not even original.The flawed screenplay is terrible, with an imbecile development,characters that comes and dies without any consequence, unansweredsituations, silly twists, a corny conclusion associated to very poorspecial effects. There is one specific scene that is absolutelyridiculous, when Lisa is stabbed with David's cane on her chest andthen she runs like hell without any blood or consequences. But theworse is the acting, mainly of the lead and once promising actor EdwardFurlong; he is awful, completely miscast for the role of David Goodman,shorter than Chandra West and wearing a suit that probably belongs tohis father. The decadent Michael Madsen keeps the (low) level of hislast performances and Chandra West is the best that this movie mayoffer to the viewers. My vote is three.<br><br>Title (Brazil): "O Escolhido" ("The Chosen")
