I really liked this spoof.
17 October 1998 | by zorch-2See all my reviews

this movie is a clever spoof of every grade B detective movie of the "Guy Noir" type of of movie from the 30s 40s ,whenever. No cliche is left out including a chase scene on horseback. Sort of a pre "dead men don't wear plaid". Eddie Constantine keeps a straight face throughout, but the audience can't.
