Too many ridiculous scenes....
26 September 2000 | by (Deltona, Florida) – See all my reviews

I found this made for TV movie with too many ridiculous scenes. A police detective's wife is kidnapped, and he later asks ex-cop, now private investigator [Spenser] to investigate, and find his wife.

In one scene, the detective responds to a 911 call where Spenser is force to shoot a man that had threatened his girlfriend with a knife. Upon arriving, the detective seems to have a condescending and unfriendly attitude towards Spenser.

The detective who is later laid in a hospital bed after being shot by the kidnapper, tells Spenser to find the shooter and waste him. This scene does not make sense as do others that follow, which I will not get into so as not to spoil it for those who want to see this drama of a movie. It's as if the script was rushed without proper technical advice, or scenes just made up as they went along. For those who do see this movie, I'm sure many will agree with my critique.
