Though Lynda Carter and Jim Carrey did not appear onscreen together in this television film, they both portrayed DC comic book characters (the title role on Wonder Woman (1975) and The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995)). Five years after this television film, Jim portrayed a Dark Horse comic book superhero known as The Mask (1994) which made a name for himself. See more »
Instead I rated it a 5 because of the loose ends. Lots of twists to the plot just as one would expect with Mike Hammer. But I like my endings tied up neatly and this film doesn't even explain why Hammer was parachuted into Vegas or why that was the only way to get him there.
