Quotes

Frank Romeo: I don't get it, they kill him with a icepick, icepick! You ever hear of such a thing? That's the way they used to kill squealers. Vinny was no squealer! They should've had some respect for him. I mean, you want to kill a guy, get rid of him, that's one thing, but Vinny was always a standup guy. They coulda had some respect for him, they didn't have to do like that. You see what they did to him?

Busted Pilot covered in hair
19 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lots and lots of hair. The only enjoyment in watching this film is the nostalgic kind. That early 70's TV look, that cast, and those hairdos. Shatner is startling to look upon at first, with his oily hair and lamb-chop sideburns (not to mention his outfits). Then there is Richard Castellano, who is never less than repugnant to view, with a terrorist-torn-out-of-bed hairstyle that is a work of grunge art. His character is not much better.

As for the content of this TV movie, there's little to say. It was a pilot for a proposed 1973 NBC series called 'The Prosecutors.' It never got past this film. Familiar cast, familiar story, plodding execution. With almost iconic types like David Doyle and Murray Hamilton popping up, along with the camp master himself Shatner, it's hard to pay much attention to the story: you spend more time thinking "I remember that actor!" Unfortunately, the star of the film is the colorless James Olson. Now, if Shatner had been put in place of Olson this might have been far more entertaining. Oh, and Susan Stafford has a small role. Very pretty, but showed far more brains and talent when she got OUT of showbiz later.
