Average plot with a few good twists and terrible direction
26 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The plot had potential and could have been made into a better movie, had it been directed properly without apparent loopholes, and absurd scenes. In a way the movie is justified (sort-of)- given that it was made in the 80s and 'reality check' or 'logic' was as absurd concept. What really baffles me is the rating of 7.3. I think it needs to be mentioned someplace that movie is given a rating of 7.3 compared to all other movies of the decade. That would make sense. Overall an average 'whodunit' with a couple of twists,that can be watched one-time. Do not, I repeat, do not go by the rating of the movie. It only raises ones expectations, and one is to be thoroughly disillusioned while watching the movie.
