Shockingly bad
21 November 2005 | by rmcmurdoSee all my reviews

Very interesting......... so maybe this is what happens to very successful UK stars that fall off the radar . Cannot believe that David Jason/David Macallum would have gotten involved in this genre !! Mix of bad American cop series vs Man from Uncle spy,American made obviously with Septic production. A movie that defies belief which surely did not make a profit.Cannot make my mind up if it was classified as a spoof or a comedy because it is certainly NOT a thriller !! I can only think that both main actors had commitments to their pension funds that needed servicing !! David Jason has surely lowered himself to the edge of his profession in this with epics of old like INspector Frost and other high class UK "made for TV" series and specials
