Better than average network TV production
22 March 1999 | by gordemSee all my reviews

This film had a superior plot, suspense and fine acting from the lead players. Some lines were a little trite...."all's clear at the southend"...over the radio from a surveillance cop, and some of the technical references were exaggerated but on the whole, the film was surprisingly good considering contemporary network fare. If it's rerun, get the popcorn ready and enjoy....it's worth watching.
