Guess what's up ahead?
18 January 2006 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

Danger Ahead is a pretty amusing crime drama that takes pains to either make things painfully obvious before they occur, or make things impossibly clueless and stupid that it becomes amusing. An old sea captain and his daughter go to a club to get the 40,000 dollars he's owed for the cargo he's brought in. But unfortunately, the club's owner, who brought the cargo in, has a scheme (with plenty of eyebrow raising) of robbing the man of his money. After knocking the guy senseless, a newspaper reporter, who's viewed all of this it seems from the table he was sitting at the club, rescues the money from the bad guys, and then holds the money in the newspaper's vault for safekeeping so that the captain can pick it up. (They advertise that on the front page). Well, now hold on a second, why couldn't the reporter just give BACK the money to the captain? He was still at the club. 2nd of all, after the newspaper exposes the embezzlement at the club, why are the bad guys still hanging out there, and better yet, why aren't the cops doing anything? Such ridiculous questions abound in this film. Although the plot is well, implausible, at least Lawrence Harvey makes for an entertaining hero, and the cast does a great job of supporting him. Lot and lots of action here too, so this is a film that never gets boring.
