Charles Durning as a sex symbol?
27 September 2004 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

How can you not like Byron Allen? No matter what project he is involved in, he certainly always seems to put his heart into it 100%.

While this may seem to be an unusual partnering of the young and (sometimes) over-enthusiastic (read overacting) Allen with the seasoned Durning, they both seem to have a pretty good time together and this makes for a very watchable film. The story revolves around an old unsolved diamond heist with Durning as the lead detective, now retired.

Allen drafts Durning back in action after a series of murders with a connection to this old case, hoping Durnings familiarity with the cold case might provide some spark to help solve it.

Allen provides good comic relief and delivers his lines (at least the funny ones)effectively. You don't need to be a master detective to figure this one out, but I would recommend it anyway.
