Better than average TV fare
2 June 2000 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Most TV movies I've seen are abysmal. But this one manages to rise above than with some okay photography and a really cool musical score by David Michael Frank (whatever became of him?).

Jeff Fahey is quite good at playing Frank, a crooked cop who is hiding out from the bad guys who blinded him in Mexico.

There he meets Mia Sara who plays Chandler Strange and he becomes involved in a schemey sub-plot. Things turn against him as events arise suspicion.

This TV movie has it's roots in low-key gangster movies and sticks to them like glue. By doing this the whole movie feels authentic and atmospheric. Which is not something you see all the time in TV movies. Overall 6/10
