Defend yourself! Don't bother seeing this!!
31 October 2004 | by anxietyresisterSee all my reviews

Absolutely awful made-for-TV thriller with laughable performances and a cliché-ridden, predictable plot. Linda Purl plays a special-needs worker who sees a murderer, is invited to testify at his court day and then is put in serious danger after the case is dismissed. If the police in the USA are as useless as they are depicted in this movie, I'm surprised they manage to find the donut shop. Features possibly the most hairy husband in the world (and he likes to walk around with his shirt off, Yuck!) and a pet cat whose only possible inclusion must be to have been slaughtered by the bad guy as a warning to our heroine. Pathetic. Pass on this one, and go do something more interesting instead.. like cleaning round the U-bend. 0/10
