first-rate made-for-TV movie
21 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very good made-for-television thriller with Fahey as ex-cop who is now a principled bad guy, and Sara as the femme fatale he falls for. Both leads plus Ben Gazzarra as the police detective are fine. This might've merited a feature film production, I think. Lush music score with trumpet is great, as another reviewer said. Frank Mckenna(Fahey) cracks a safe and delivers the contents to an associate, but is shot in the back on the way out. Blinded temporarily, he escapes to Mexico to recuperate, where he meets the mysterious Chandler Strange (Sara) and love ensues. Frank's vision returns, but not before Chandler has departed, and Frank returns to the States himself to settle scores. However, he finds that his little heist has caught him in a web far larger than he expected. His ex-partner, detective Ira Gold (Gazzarra), is now on his trail, Chandler reappears, and principled Frank must devise a way to get the girl, keep the loot, and make sure the REAL bad guys go down! You will not be disappointed with this solid little TV pic.
