Night turkey
1 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to bother giving a decent synopsis of the story as the characters make it impossible to follow. All the men look the same with their moustaches. It's ridiculous. The main guy is Harry Cross (Jack Raine), a detective who is trying to catch some bloke who throws knives at people. This bad guy is part of a gang of robbers who meet at a club owned by Charlo (Franklyn Bellamy).

It's a whodunnit mystery with an intolerably annoying Jack Raine in the lead role. He is permanently smiling or laughing and it is very irritating. The way he laughs at his wife instead of explaining things to her is unbelievable and he deserves a smack in the mouth. It's a shame that she takes it all and allows him to carry on laughing at her. With a better cast, the film could have been OK but as it stands it's confusing and not very good.
