Bizarre hook may force you to endure this movie
28 October 2002 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This thing was somewhat unusual for a TV movie. First, it moved at kind of a strange pace which I cannot really put words to. But secondly, it had a queer hook at the start of the movie which kept me hanging on to see if I had imagined it all or hallucinated or lost my mind. Very odd. Not a plot twist but more like a dangling detail. Anyway, Brigitta Dau is totally hot for any men watching and women will enjoy seeing Scott Reeves with his shirt off. Cathy Lee Crosby does a good job as one of the villains. I cannot really recommend the movie but it beats watching a rerun of Leave It to Beaver.
