Odd B Action Adventure
21 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

A sea Captain (John Elliott) brings in a cargo of silk for a nightclub owner (Bryant Washburn). Washburn pays the Captain the $40.000 he owes him but then instructs his henchmen to rob the Captain. A newspaper reporter (Lawrence Gray) witnesses the robbery and intervenes. Gray steals the money back for Elliott but must flee the nightclub without returning the cash. Now Washburn sends his men after Gray, who in turn wishes to return the cash to the Captain.

The first thing I noticed about this poverty row adventure film was the number of recognizable actors. The acting itself is a notch above average poverty row. However there are some issues with the film. I'm not sure if it's editing or the screenplay but there are moments when the film's scenes take a very long time to develop. I'll give you an example. A pivotal scene has Gray become aware of the robbery of the Captain. The reporter watches as crooks lock the Captain into a phone booth. Gray does nothing. Then a sliding door opens and a gunman orders the Captain into the room. Gray does nothing. Finally, after an eternity, Gray jumps up and starts to pound on the phone booth.

The other problem is the long disappearance of Elliott. He is intricate to the plot, yet after the Captain is robbed and beaten and lays dazed we do not see him in the story for a long long time. The film is fact plays much like a serial. There is action and stunts but it seems the no one was really worried about the scenario, which is too bad because the cast is quite good.
