okay but not even great enough to be a underrated gem
reviewer rridgwell from u.k. was right on the money, the overhead microphone continuously shown on the scene so obvious and so many times only proved that movie was carelessly produced. and one thing bothered me a lot was: prosecuted for stealing from a post office's safe and indicted for a life sentence? is that so? jailed for 12 years out of state and then transferred to Texas for the rest of his life? are you serious? did you ever hear anything like that, stayed in an out-of-state for 12 years then expatriated to another state to serve as a lifer? this is such a loosely scripted film that r.m. just walked through it without any effort. watchable but not quite interested and all we viewers could walk away and forget about it just like him walking away from the hospital and disappeared without a trace.
