Unexpected good
9 November 2002 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

The Underworld is a very good TV-Film, no doubt about that. It misses some action and violence but that's not really a big point for a TV-Film. So, don't expect action or violence but count on solid laughs, great tension and a fantastic plot written by Christopher McQuarrie, the same writer of The Usual Suspects. Kevin Pollak (Casino) is superb as the bank robber Charlie Dyer and Josh Charles (Dead Poets Society) plays Ehrlich very convincing. Director Rod Holcomb (Captain America) created another good TV-Film. Watch it, if possible.

RATING 7,5/10
