Likeable if mindless British B-MOVIE
4 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie wasn't THAT bad but it had so many plot holes, poor acting by the lead chararecters, unconvincing fight scenes and it all seems a bit unrealistic although the director manages to sustain some tension despite a very poorly written script. The story rambles for far too often - even though it's only just over an hour long.

All in all a pretty mediocre 50's B movie done with very little style and is really of only intrest to fans of low budget 1950's British Films

My rating 6/10 (Because the actors try their best with very poor material and their very limited acting abilities)
