So so heist movie

I waited for it since a long time. Well, let's be fair, it is not really a heist movie, no as I really mean or as I love. It would rather be a wrong man style movie. An armored car guard who is accused to be accomplice in the robbery of his own shipment, and who must clear himself, find the real thieves. Is it an inside job or not? Police officers let him free to look out for the actual robbers. I find it unbelievable.

The following is of course predictable. I consider this TV movie more as an eighties one, than a seventies.

Christopher George is quite good, as Howard Duff as the police officer.

A good time waster, nevertheless.
