Excellent performances.
15 January 2004 | by (Brantford, Canada) – See all my reviews

I really like this movie especially the performance of Nicol Willimson as O'Rourke. It is one of those films that the British were good at but don't make anymore. Not a lot happens, no big action sequences, and a small storyline would not entice many people but it holds the attention well. John Thaw, David Warner and the others all turn in excellent performances but it is Willimson who stands out. Rating 7 out of 10.
