Not very engaging story of police fighting saboteurs and each other
3 August 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Sub-par run of the mill story about two guys in love with the same woman...sort of. Second billed Dick Purcell is the star of this mish mash of comedy action, romance and espionage. Purcell is a private in an island constabulary who is jealous of his friend, "Horseshoe", who won great acclaim when he bombed a villain's hide out. There's fun and games as the two men try to out do each other. The constabulary is attempting to provide protection for the building over a dangerous swamp, however a band of bad guys wants to stop the bridge and so they move from sniping at the workers to burning down the storage shed. Its a mess as the movie doesn't know whether its serious,or a comedy or what the real plot of the film is. Its not bad so much as unengaging, which is a shame since this movie really looks good and has a wonderful old Hollywood sense of place. But to be honest 15 minutes in I lost interest and while the DVD ran to the end I wasn't much paying attention. If I ran across it on TV and there wasn't anything else on I'd try it again, but other than that this is a well made misfire.
