Storyline

In Corinth, a dying town 15 miles from Pittsburg: One evening, a Japanese businessman, who wanted to tear down the closed iron mills to build an amusement park, is found half dead in his mill. Bellboy Barry admits to have done it - in self defense. Chief Ruhle interrogates him and Sugito's young wife and business partners, but it takes a while, until he gets through the maze of apparently contradictory statements. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Total waste of time .......
10 February 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

An attempted murder of a Japanese businessman in a dying Pennsylvania steel town had plenty of promise. The red herrings are introduced at a rapid rate, like the disgruntled steel workers who don't want an amusement park taking the place of their union jobs, or the town rebel played by Jeff Fahey wanting to run off with the businessman's wife, or the wife herself, Bridget Fonda, wanting her husband out of the picture. Different characters tell police captain, J.T.Walsh, their version of the murder attempt in flashbacks. If all this sounds confusing, it is. "Iron Maze" is also convoluted, pointless, ridiculous, and a total waste of time. - MERK
