OK film
4 July 2005 | by monkey-manSee all my reviews

This film was OK it starts off with two men robing a rich old woman's house and then she comes home and then she and one of the thieves die and the man that died dropped a diamond necklace in a crack in the basement and then 4 months later the other robber comes back to the house to get it.The movie was better then i thought it would be but at times the movie was crap and the acting was OK but it could of been better.U should rent this film or buy it if $5 or less and this film stars OK actors like Michele Greene,Steve Railsback,Bruce Dinsmore,Kathleen Kinmont and Vlasta Vrana.over all i give this movie 5 out of 10.
