True to the spirit of the original
6 July 2002 | by spiderwingSee all my reviews

I used to watch re-runs of the original Peter Gunn late at night with my father, and picked this one up as a nostalgia piece. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this reflected the 'look and feel' of the 1960's series.

The movie has a nice, period feel to it. The actors are pleasantly understated. The level of blood and gore is unbelievably low considering the amount of gun play that happens. Even the music is true to the original.

Definitely worth seeing.
