Functional B movie thriller.
21 July 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This minor private eye movie has more than a hint of THE GLASS KEY in Taylor's abduction and beating. We get the P.I. meeting the pay roll by doing a surveillance job that ends in a murder - swim suit models, a missing key and a hovering Asian minder.

The second string cast meet the need with Dowling surprisingly glamorous.The small budget doesn't get in the way of a B movie slickness.
