Not too bad TV movie

Author: John Seal from Oakland CA

The Diamond Trap has two things going for it: the presence of the avuncular Howard Hesseman in the lead role and some decent location footage shot in and around London, an unusual luxury for a made-for-TV film. Unfortunately the film is also saddled with a truly wretched performance by Brooke Shields, whose attempts at an English accent are quite bizarre. Nothing special, but if you can overlook Ms. Shields, an acceptable way to kill 90 minutes.

Very boring detective movie. Couldn't they at least agree as to what era they were in? Howard Hesseman is weak and embarrassing. He almost makes Brooke Shields seem good. No, nothing could do that. She was completely unredeemable.

Originally, made for tv, but eventually released as film. My guess is that no network would have it. Most likely went straight to video, which is just a waste of good videotape.

The worst is that it's not bad enough to funny. Just boring tv detective shlock. I recommend the movie ROTOR one hundred times over this borefest.
