A very good TV movie.
28 December 2002 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews



I watched this flick from beginning to end, and enjoyed every minute.

Granted, there are a few implausibilities (all the killers dressed in black, with long black raincoats?), but it was easy for me to ignore the minor glitches and just kick back.

Saul Rubinek makes a very good villain, just enough over the top not to be totally implausible. And with Kim Cattrall and Carroll O'Connor adding their nickels' worth...

Enjoy.
