29 December 2002 | by (Cyberia) – See all my reviews

The central character in this movie is a gun; the story deals with the various characters who possess it, and the bad ends they come to. I haven't seen it for almost 30 years, so I can't write a proper review; but it sticks out in my mind as a TV-movie of the better sort, i.e. where the low budget and tight schedule encourage innovation that might not be acceptable on a big-budget movie needing to offer a safe return on its investment.
