A very interesting and well done film for a made-for-TV movie.
3 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film very much. It moves along smartly and doesn't have any slow sections. The most interesting thing about it is the complete role reversal in the character played by Ted Levine. The previous film in which most people saw him was Silence Of The Lambs. He played the serial killer Buffalo Bill. In this film he plays a likable good-guy character who elicits the viewers sympathies. Adam Baldwin's character is also very well cast and played. This is a film I'd very much like to find a video copy of to add to my collection. For some reason even though it is one of the better made-for-TV films of this genre this movie never seems to get replayed on television. The scene at the beginning where a dead body is dropped from a helicopter through a glass ceiling into the middle of a large party is a real eye-popper. There are several twists and turns before the who-done-it is solved.
