This groaner ran in Canada a week earlier than NBC and I don't feel privileged because of it. The production, directing and acting are strictly amateurish. It was produced by Global TV in Canada and it reflects the poor economy and tight budgets likely shadowing the production. Even the "middle-ages" boating flashbacks look like they were filmed in a bathtub. Mira Sorvino's character is unrealistically like a female Indy Jones, jousting from the back of a mounted-policeman's steed, overpowering 3 hoods and performing various other unlikely feats of daring-do. It's devoid of mystery, drama or intrigue and too reminiscent of most dull network movies of the past decade.
