A fine movie
14 December 1999 | by chrnaessSee all my reviews

This was a fine film starring Powers Booth, He delivers a fine performance and is perfect for the part. Beautiful Cindy Pickett and Terry O`Quinn stars as well in this well above average film.

The movie is about Booth goes to a small town to look into a murder.

The movie has good action sequences and a good story to go with it, nice music also contributes and good performances makes this a fine entertaining movie.
