Only partly effective.
20 July 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This film only partly achieves it's goal to keep the viewer interested. While it certainly isn't anything special, it's better than most would expect. The plot concerns efforts to steal a rare painting and a murderer. Perhaps more interesting than the film itself is the fact that parts of this ended up in "Track of the Vampire".
