Storyline

Det. Const. "Dangerous" Davies is not known for his finesse, but often finds himself on the receiving end of violence in various forms. Only thrown into cases where others fear to tread, or to shake up the natives with his bumbling, he is given a mission to find and flush out a local criminal recently returned from abroad, possibly for "a big job". In his research he inadvertently stumbles upon a 15 year-old case, long considered cold, of the disappearance a young girl. His compassion for the missing girl and her parents draws him into an obsession with solving the case, which ultimately results in unexpected repercussions. Written by Raj Rijhwani

I liked it.
26 April 1999 | by (San Jose, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

This may be Mr. Cribbins only starring/title role. The picture is a well plotted assortment of red herrings about a bumbling detective who is put on one case as a stalking horse, and solves a much older one. However, I can't find a VHS copy of it anywhere. Mr. Cribbins may have the only one if that. That is also why there are no votes and comments about the film.
