Bogus "psychological" thriller has no value.
12 January 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Christopher Plummer makes a good B-movie mad doctor. Among the hostages you'll see resembles the face of Groucho Marx. I thought this flick was about mind control! On the circumstance, this one is bogus as movies go. It's a state of confusion that offers no cure. Not even the large cast of cops at the end would save it. Rent this and make your own decision. Did you know that MINDFIELD was based on a novel? Did the director lose his mind making this book into a movie? Did I ever mention the word "bogus"?
