Don't Be Compelled To Watch This
21 April 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a typical cheap Danzigers B Production.Howard is blackmailed into helping to dig a tunnel into the vault of a nearby jewelers,thereby ruining his marriage,his hands and his job as an architect.The logical thing would be for him to tell the police and his wife.alas the film is not very well written and poorly developed.We have 2 very strange characters lurking about.firstly there is the rather simple minded henchman who on the one hand is trying to learn French and on the other hand happy to murder for his boss.Then we have a strange character who wanders into the basement with a gun and demands a cut of the loot..Added to this we have a very contrived ending.Certainly in the second division when compared to Merton Park films.
