You can telekinesis. But will he listen?
29 July 1999 | by (Arlington Texas) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite from the George Hamilton collection. It has all the plots and turns you need to keep changing your mind on which is the bad guy(s) . Everyone acts well; however it is George Hamilton there holds it all together. So get out your popcorn and remember, that to watch this movie, "you've got to have hart" . I am still looking for a VHS copy of this video.
