Donald Strachey's claim to fame is being the only openly gay private investigator in the Albany area. He is married to Tim Callahan, the aide to Democratic senator, Dianne Glassman. Because of the expensive house renovations Donald and Tim are going through, Donald reluctantly takes the case of John Rutka, a gay advocate, who is hated by homophobes for being so vocally gay, and by many gays, such as Donald and Tim, because he, through his website, outs gays who want to stay in the closet. The higher the profile of his targets, the better he feels he is advancing the gay cause. John was shot in his own home by an unknown assailant, while his boyfriend Eddie Santon was home with him. John wants Donald to find out and nab who shot him, before the perpetrator finishes the job. They believe that the shooter is probably working for one of the many he is investigating as possibly being gay, the three who he was contemplating possibly featuring in the next edition of his blog being the ...

Well, don't you think it's a little bit strange, not to know when you're in somebody's will?
Okay, I think I get the drift of this. Let me tell you something, okay? John was a royal pain in the ass, but he was family and I loved him. And if you're thinking for one second that, what, I murdered him for half a bowling alley and a house, you're out of your fucking mind, okay? So, excuse me, but I have to go bury my brother now.
What a jerk!

This very watchable and super enjoyable gay themed detective film shows how much one can do on a more limited budget when a cast and crew have talent and vision. The story follows the investigation of an attempted murder and subsequent events by gay private detective Donald Strachey, played with perfection by a very sexy, very hot Chad Allen. Part of the reason for Chad Allen's superb performance is his natural ease and great comfort with himself and his character. He doesn't seem to be acting so much as becoming his character, which is a great credit to his ability. The film follows his character through a series of events filled with lots of twists and surprises that will satisfy any mystery/private detective connossuer. The seamless development and constant freshness of the storyline show how well written, well directed, and well performed this terrific film is. The mystery is revealed with great care and would make any mystery writer proud and the relationship storyline with Chad Allen and Sebastian Spence is treated with great respect, ease and much humor. It's great to see Jack Wetherall, from Queer As Folk, in a pivotal role in this film and he does a fantastic job here as the character much of the story revolves around. Third Man Out is the first in a series of films about the investigations of Donald Strachey - and that's great news. I look forward to many more. It's a credit to Chad Allen, Ron Oliver, and a very talented cast and crew who've already made this series a big success!
