Believe me .......
15 March 2003 | by khatcher-2See all my reviews

This TV film is so bad, so bad, so bad ..... and so bad. I did not think that a UK company could make anything so bad for TV. And just thinking that a version was made for the cinema with some of the actors from this TV film, sometimes called "Covert Assassin", only makes the affront doubly worse. I will not speak about the acting as it was terrible; I will not speak about the plot as it was even worse; I will not speak about anything to do with this film, as it was so bad, so bad, so bad ......... and so bad. The good thing is that some brilliant type invented the interior-sprung mattress, which is where I went after about half of this codswallop.
