An adequate time-passer
22 July 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have written quite a few reviews and I try not to comment on other reviews, but on the movies themselves. However, I must point out that this is NOT a movie about "an inept, unthinking, uncaring, moronic policeman"--in fact, the other review for this film posted in 2005 sounds as if the person either did not see the film or perhaps they have some strong hatred of police that colored how they saw the film. Instead, it's a film about a decent man who is a cop and his brother who is a petty crook that is wanted for murder. The cop does NOT use his sick mother as bait and the message of the film is very pro law and order. He just does his job. Once the brother is caught and imprisoned, the rest of the film is about the gang that was responsible for his incarceration as well as their forcing the father to assist them in burglarizing businesses for which he's a night watchman.

The film is a B-film, with a very small budget and lasting just about one hour. Like many Bs, the film is reasonably entertaining but lacks depth and lasting appeal. As such, it's just a time-passer and not a film to rush out to see, though it's not a bad movie either.
