for an average episode it's slightly above average

A big problem here is that this material would work much better in a half hour as the basic situation of 2 people on the phone isn't riveting hour long material. The many flashbacks are done in soap opera fashion with the watery dissolves in and out of them. For the most part though Joseph Pevney directs slickly. The opening fight scene is very noirish and a final shot of Seagal is very effective. There are some nice shots and staging in the whole thing. Seagal is very good but can't quite sustain an hour of this. He's a very good actor who can play a heel (as in King Rat) or a nice guy, this role intention is to make you wonder which he really is.

The melodramatic padding though is really thick at times especially as the tearful wife in one scene says "I can't I can't. I won't! I won't!" I mean what can you really do with bathotic hysteria like that?
