Non stop action packed thriller!
20 March 2004 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

Scott Brady plays a ship's officer.

He arrives in England and gets another officer to take his duties for a few days.

He wants to spend some time with his brother.

He discovers his brother is about to be hanged!

Scott Brady then launches his own investigation.

This flick has more twists and turns than a mud road in West Virginia!

The hero is lied to, thumped on, set up, betrayed, etc.

He also falls in love.

This is one terrific flick.

I gave it a ten.
