A lousy movie saved very little by Susan Blakely
8 August 2001 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie expecting a good storyline and action. I received lots of action but no story line. The actors in this movie were better quality than this picture. David Wayne who played on Ellery Queen as the father is a better actor and so is Susan Blakely. She has a nude scene in the movie near the end, but I could only give this movie two stars which means it was saved by her endowments and not the storyline. Do not rent this movie expecting any sense, but lots of lousy action and some steam.
