Robin Hardy had originally written the part of Sir Lachlan Morrison for Christopher Lee. However, while filming The Resident, Lee injured his back after tripping over power cables on set. Although extremely disappointed, Hardy cast the actor who was originally playing Beame, Graham McTavish in Lee's role, with actor Clive Russell taking over the part of Beame. Still wanting to include Lee, Hardy quickly wrote a cameo role for him. He appears Sir Lachlan's mentor in a flashback. See more »
I'm not usually the type to scathe a film the first time I watch it, but this is a genuine exception.
I cant help but feel like the story line had such potential and the characters could have been fantastic, but somewhere along the line it fell apart.
I could see snippets in the move of where it should have gone and how much potential the film had. I felt the acting was acceptable for the most part, but the rest was a hacked up mess that barely made any sense.
I suspect that someone got hold of the script before the film was make and hacked it up, then after the whole thing was shot cut out a bunch more.
Such potential all hacked up
