Death is the winning side
25 February 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Ensemble cast deliver a taut, reasonably tense suspense TV movie concerning a physician (Forsythe) with a dark past whose current dalliance with a married woman (Bain) leads to murder, the framing of an innocent man (Burton) and a sequence of double-crosses that should keep most audiences both entertained and surprised.

Forsythe is economical as the suspicious Doctor whose patients seem to experience a higher fatality rate than usual, while Kiley is the well-informed cuckold, seeking to end the romance between Forsythe and his wife (Bain) through blackmail. Joseph Campanella is perhaps the film's highlight as the local detective who's one step ahead.

Compact thriller is short on time but punches above its weight for overall impact with a tidy conclusion that features more twists than a Chubby Checker tune, so check it out when you have 70 minutes spare.
