Nice Guys Finish Last?
1 December 2001 | by cabeattieSee all my reviews

Interesting tale of naive hotel security guard "Jake," duped by femme fatale jewel thief. He becomes prime suspect in crime, sets out to find her himself.

He's studying to join the force, but here he gets a real education. Life lessons learned the hard way.

All the elements are there, but "good enough for TV" aim doesn't allow piece to shine.

First time out for director Wilson. Bookmark him for future works.

Experienced writer Greenblatt may hyphenate himself toward producing, leaning toward efficacious journey. "Too many producers spoil the pot."

Credit may go to young Wennekers for depth story provides. "Still waters run deep."

Peters and Ori traditionally lean toward roles of a criminal ilk. This show doesn't give them room they deserve to break out of small screen.

Excellent cast: Young as "the lady" -- Perlman as jealous boss. (He seems here a cross between greying Tony Roberts and racetrack cigar chomper, but creates interest.)

John Saxon as Detective Murphy, "been there, done that" gumshoe who kicks down door without breaking sweat. AWOL much of second half.

Albert lost in too-small role.

Portrayal of "everyman" guard Jake Franklin not always believable. Too naive for someone pursuing career in justice. Gets honor points for passing on payola, though.

Good use of vintage G-series as getaway vehicle.

London's music works, but could have been mixed judiciously for better appreciation. Too much dialogue looping.

May have done better with feature-size crew and noir motifs. Start voiceover earlier, use flashbacks, multiple points-of-view.

Well done, though audience can handle a deeper black.

AKA "Seduced by a Thief."
