Interesting Thriller
3 January 2002 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Very interesting Thriller, a Mike-Hammer TV-Special. The plot is excellent and has a few surprises and the cast is brilliant. Stacy Keach plays Mike Hammer as always but Tanya Roberts as his secretary Velda is a real pleasure. She bewitches us with her girlie-like charme and her soft sex-appeal.
