Talented actors mired in a terrible mess
23 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Oh ...my....goodness. Darren McGavin is a talented actor. Nick Adams is a talented actor. While I think they did the best they could, this is simply dreadful. I sincerely hope their checks cashed because there cannot possibly be any other reason for agreeing to be involved in this cinematic disaster. One problem is that Nick Adams had very little to do. He can always be counted on to give a good performance but fiddling with some kind of dial for the majority of the picture is a misuse of his skill. I am not a science fiction fan so the story needs to be compelling to engage me. Sadly, this ain't it. I truly admire actors: they are the most underemployed group of people I know. So many talented people and not enough quality work for them. Darren McGavin lived to put this disaster behind him. He is fondly remembered for other, better roles. Sadly, Nick Adams did not live long enough to see his career turn around as well, which it very likely would have. So many actors have had second acts to their careers and he could certainly have thrived in supporting roles. I have read the other reviews and know that this film has a special place in some people's lives. Good to know. I will watch another episode of The Rebel or Saints and Sinners to see Nick Adams in a much more worthy vehicle.
