Storyline

In Corinth, a dying town 15 miles from Pittsburg: One evening, a Japanese businessman, who wanted to tear down the closed iron mills to build an amusement park, is found half dead in his mill. Bellboy Barry admits to have done it - in self defense. Chief Ruhle interrogates him and Sugito's young wife and business partners, but it takes a while, until he gets through the maze of apparently contradictory statements. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Is it really so hard to get that mic out of sight?
14 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

So the director must be a fan of Akira Kurosawa, referring with this movie to Rashomon. Easy, take a clever plot and fill out the details with a very boring detective case. I'm glad Walsh was in this one, he is the only actor worth watching. Fonda is an expressionless wallflower and Fahey is the most prototypical B-movie actor I have ever seen.

Really, why do people make such movies? Do they hope the audience gets tricked into buying (or renting) this film so they can make some profit out of this budget wasting creep? Most bad movies do have at least one or two scenes that are unintentionally funny or weird. This one lacks in all places (except, again, for Walsh, which is why I do not give it the lowest rating). Brainless anti-entertainment.
