Not Gritty Enough For Mike Hammer, But Fine For TV.
16 March 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

The only problem with this movie series was the Made4TV factor. Mike Hammer was a rough-n-ready detective, much like the old Cannon series cross-bred with Sherlock Holmes, with a little New Yorker thrown in for good measure. The M4TV movies just couldn't do all that and still get the general audience clearing they needed for their time slot. They are therefore, lacking in edgy toughness needed to perpetrate a full on assault of the senses one would expect from this franchise.

Stacy Keach, however, is the epitome of perfect casting. He was the absolute best actor for this role. I always enjoy these movies, regardless of their downfalls.

This one rates a 6.4/10 on the M4TV scale from...
