OK fare.
29 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

This made-for-TV crime drama is one of those films that terms like "OK" and "passable" must have been invented for. It certainly isn't a bad film to be condemned and ignored at once, but it isn't good enough to be watched twice or to deserve special attention, either. Just a professionally made little thriller that manages to sustain your interest, despite a high number of implausibilities in the second half. Never rousing but always watchable.
