Poor quality
6 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kirby (Edward Norris) sets out to prove that Gribbon (Ted Hecht) is an innocent man. Gribbon has been charged with the "Flower Shop" murder of a colleague. We know that Chris (John Abbott) is guilty and the film follows Kirby's attempts to get a confession from him. An elaborate set-up is needed.

Unfortunately, the quality of this film is poor and sometimes the audio is difficult to hear and the picture is too dark to see. The story develops quickly and is entertaining while it lasts although there was a section with a howling dog that went on a bit too long. With regards to the cast, John Abbott makes a good baddie while the newspaper editor is annoying whenever he is on screen. He's meant to be funny. He also makes a comment to the effect that Gribbon doesn't look like a criminal. Oh yes he does - look again. From his conviction at the beginning of the film, he looks like a psycho.

The film is short and passes the time and has an interesting chase on the ledges of an apartment block. It could have been quite an exciting film if it had been fleshed out a little more to give the story more tension and suspense.
