Fun murder mystery with a 007 alum!
5 October 2014 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a fun made for TV murder mystery movie starring James Bond actor Roger Moore, who plays Thomas Grace. He teams up with psychic Jessie Galardo (Nancy Allen) to stop the homicidal Bernard Drake (Malcolm McDowell) from carrying out murders that were based on novels.

Moore and Allen had some great on-screen chemistry and made a great detective duo. The acting is spot on and the plot has much momentum; just the criminal Drake escaping from prison and wanting to revenge himself on Thomas Grace for 'stealing his personality' created a unique plot device and is sure to grab the audience's attention. The duo roles played by Moore and McDowell are a clever touch.

Moore is my favorite Bond actor, and it is a treat seeing him in an out-of-character role but retaining his investigative and detective skills in catching bad guys. It's a classic-style murder mystery movie that will give you nostalgia and great excitement and fun!

Grade B+
