Worth watching
2 October 2006 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

a great film although I am biased - Robert Mackenzie was my father. He would have been really chuffed to read the viewers comments - sadly he passed away last year without seeing them - fortunately his family and friends were generous with their praise! This is a good story with both Michael Caine and Gordon Jackson co-staring - a good plot and one of those early films that you can enjoy on a cold rainy afternoon! It is the one film that we don't have on video - and all attempts to get a copy have so far failed - should somebody have a copy of this film - I would gladly purchase a copy from them. There are a couple of other films called Blind Spot - but only one with my Dad, Michael Cain and Gordon Jackson in it - I would really love a copy!!!!
