Well Intended, Bad Execution
20 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

I like narratives where one armed men figure into the plot. "Bad Day At Rock" is a great movie and The Fugitive is my all time favorite TV series. "DVD: Self-Made Man" certainly contributes to the limited cannon of one-armed man tales in cinema and television. Unfortunately, the script for this story is clunky with a capital "C". I think a bad script can sink any given celluloid ship no matter how great the actors are or who is directing. I offer up this episode of DVD as an example. I kept expecting "the old ranger" to ride into the proceedings with a shotgun and put all the actors out of their misery. I'm sorry to report that didn't happen. Oh, well.
