Awful! Do not waste your money.
6 September 2002 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

This film is awful. I rented it because at our store it was $0.99 Thursday rental. The movie was very slow paced and did not keep one's attention. Robert Vaughn has got to be one of the worst actors. Has he ever done anything other than B movies. No. He is that bad. Donald Pleasence was casted, but had such a small role that one could not judge his abilities. The only part I did like was the brick work which is movie is loosely based on. 2/10
