Dirk Benedict showcase
15 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a loooooong time ago and don't remember too much about it which should tell you something. As i recall it was a pilot for a TV show that was never picked up but don't quote me on that. It's easy to see why it wasn't picked up, with Dirk doing another Face come Starbuck style turn i should imagine he was getting bored with that kind of character and it seems to come across in the picture. Its all just lacking that spark and the tell tale twinkle of a scoundrel in the main characters eye.

Basically as far as i can remember Dirk does a good combination of Face & Starbuck but without the back bone. Worth it if you like Dirk Benedict which is easy to do as he's a bloody nice chap, although it has to be said that the facial hair he sports through out the movie is best described as a mistake.
