Storyline

When a married man is found murdered, and his girlfriend is missing, the police suspect the wife of the murdered man. The wife turns to a professor at college who is a medically disabled ex-cop to help clear her. Not wanting the job at first, he eventually does begin to investigate the crime while fighting the demons and the pain of his own life. The clues are scarce, but one clue is that the man was murdered with an unusual weapon - a musket. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

aptly named film
6 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

film is aptly named because once in a while you come across a film which provides an occasional hell to have to watch...actually this one would be highly recommended for viewing by an arborist- wooden plot, wooden script, wooden acting, etc, etc, etc....I like tom berenger, but this is the equivalent of painting by numbers on steroids...and not even the nude scenes can help this turkey, but I can highly recommend it if you want to have a nice nap mid-movie, then wake up not feeling as though you missed anything...berenger's imaginary visits by the female missing from the crime scene are particularly annoying and ridiculous and add absolutely nothing to the plot...all in all such drivel that I was compelled to stop watching a little over halfway through, which after reading the reviews, turned out to be a wise move...the people advocating this disaster as a triumph are in need of god knows what, but taste comes forefront to my mind
