Its a run-of-the-mill film with some unique twists.
Castor-11 from Victoria B.C.
29 April 2003
Ostensibly, it's a run-of-the-mill ""Who'll get the money?" movie about
$3,000,000 that goes astray, after a bungled drug sting, but it's got some
unique twists, including the ending
Some I particularly liked in this absorbing story of double -crossing
police/bad guys/civilians, were a villain who's a caring scoutmaster in
spare time, another crook has to take his illicit
son to each illegal meeting, fearful that(a)his wife will find out about
boy(b) that the lad could be a witness against him (c) That unscrupulous
criminal colleagues could blackmail him over a and b.
Too, I must confess that I have a weakness for female cops as the leads in
films...they've deliberately deglamourised Lesley Hope for this
but she still comes over as an attractive woman, and a competent
All in all, a serious effort is made to give these characters depth and
There's also lots of mild wry humour in this film, which I voted just
of ten for its reliance on a cliche or two e.g."You're under arrest, bad
person!", "Okay, but mind if I turn the t.v. on till my accomplice
so's you can then nab the two of us?" The arresting officers look at each
other, then nod agreement. By such devices are filmdon's "bad persons"
forever making their escape.
