Rivalry Between Gangs Spoilt By Lame Ending
8 March 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly tense thriller until the last couple of minutes when all the tension evaporates as a result of a tame ending.It seems as if the scriptwriter had got to a stage where he only had about a minute left and had to devise a quick ending to wrap the film up in the alloted time.Basically what happens is that a daughter of a wealthy father is kidnapped.The gang are about to deliver a ransom note to the father.The note is left in a car.this car is stolen by a gang of car thieves.naturally they find the note and decide to cut themselves in on the action by pretending to be the kidnap gang.One added complication is that the secretary to the father is also part of the kidnap gang.Eventually at the end the gangs inevitably meet up.Although there is some action the film is brought to a conclusion by a very lame bit of writing which is very disappointing.However don't let that put you off watching an otherwise tense thriller.
