Solid b-action with good leads
2 December 2010 | by (Fi) – See all my reviews

Noticed there ain't no reviews about this one. Watched this on VHS and it's a solid low budget movie. There's good enough plot centering to catching this sleaze-bag businessman and politician with no conscience Mal Wallace, who controls the neighborhood with enforcers, money and drugs. Filmwise this is much better than something like Inner Sanctum, but that one has other values. Zavi plays good lead as a private eye and for fans of Tanya Roberts this one is worth to check out. I read some reviews about her other low-budget movies, I guess this might be one of the better ones. Her presence was the reason why I picked this up. And yes there is a short love scene where Tanya shows some flesh.
