Not bad....
6 October 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Considering that it's produced by Majestic Pictures, I sure expected this to be an awful little B-movie. However, to my surprise, I thought, for a B, it was pretty watchable.

The film stars Bruce Cabot--a guy usually known as a supporting actor or a heavy. Here he plays a newspaper reporter who is sick of having to do a gardening column! He knows nothing about it and can't wait to start covering important stories--such as a recent spate of arsons. The plot is pretty cute at times and the finale involving the fire is amazing good owing to the fact that the usual budget for a Majestic film was $47! All in all, interesting and more than just a minor time-passer--much of this due to Cabot's excellent acting and presence. Worth seeing--particularly as it is downloadable for free from the IMDb link!
