Storyline

When a married man is found murdered, and his girlfriend is missing, the police suspect the wife of the murdered man. The wife turns to a professor at college who is a medically disabled ex-cop to help clear her. Not wanting the job at first, he eventually does begin to investigate the crime while fighting the demons and the pain of his own life. The clues are scarce, but one clue is that the man was murdered with an unusual weapon - a musket. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Weak story is never overcome ......
18 October 2018 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

As the opening credits roll, there is a montage of Civil War photographs flashing on the screen. This is a definite reminder of two facts. the movie you are about to see takes place in the deep South ( as if that needed explaining), and that two Confederate Officers from the fabulous film "Gettysburg" are in "An Occasional Hell". So you get Tom Berenger and Stephen Lang, with Berenger given very little to work with, and Lang barely in the movie. Suspects abound but with little logic as to why they might commit a murder. I found this film to be confusing, unsatisfying, with a rushed conclusion, that makes little sense. Throw in the unending flashbacks, and what you are left with what is a mess of a movie. Avoid. - MERK
