Tepid British B movie
7 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Terence Fisher is likely to be remembered for his admirable work at Hammer Studios where he directed the bulk of their Frankenstein pictures ,two memorable entries in the Dracula series and several distinguished one off movies like The Mummy and the definitive Holmes movie The Hound of the Baskervilles .They were marked by their creative and elegant use of colour and some fine art direction . The Flaw is a pre Hammer picture ,a contemporary crime drama shot in lacklustre monochrome with a thin plot and some very routine acting .John Bentley plays a racing driver who marries purely for money and schemes to murder his wife after ensuring he is the sole heir ;out to thwart him is the family lawyer who sees through the scheme and secretly loves the wife himself . Poorly acted and with a perfunctory script this has little to recommend it and the director does stalwart work in sustaining what little grip the movie is ever able to exert
