The Plot Revelaed Early
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This starts off very intriguing but kind of peters out fast and never regains speed until the last few minutes. The beginning tells most of the story, as Josh brings in a wanted man only to be told he has the wrong guy! Huh? That's never happened before. Well, minutes later, we find out the man Randall brought in, "Tom Adams," really is the right guy but his father set up another man to take the fall, to save his kid. How exactly he does that, and what happens with Josh (who is not happy over this), you'll have to watch as I won't spoil things.

It does get a little suspenseful at the end, if you're like me and want to see justice prevail. There is an unexpected ending, is all I'll say.

The acting is fine in here, as always, but the only familiar face was that of Vaughn Taylor, who plays Adams' father, "Doc." Although Taylor played in a lot of TV shows involving all genres, he probably got most recognition as the guy in the beginning of "Psycho" who plays Janet Leigh's boss.
