Moderate, average Butcher's "thriller"
24 June 2000 | by (Barry, South Wales) – See all my reviews

With better direction and editing, this could have been a neat mystery-thriller. The experienced leads turn in professional performances - especially John Horsley as the detective - but the minor characters and the production values are well down to the standard of the budget.

"Quincy" and "Ironside" did this sort of thing much better a decade later.
