Storyline

When maverick private eye Nick Slaughter is hired by the seductive and mysterious Liora Burke to investigate a dubious life insurance claim, almost everyone involved tells him it's nothing more than an open and shut case of death by natural causes. But Slaughter suspects foul play, especially when his own life is repeatedly threatened. Determined to uncover the truth, the detective finds himself drawn into a sinister world of sexual scandal.

Absolute Toilet
19 November 2007 | by mutewitness76See all my reviews

A stupid, really dated, confusing pile of garbage. The plot is based around a cheesy and clichéd Hawaiian shirt wearing, pony-tail sporting Private Dick who get's caught up in a murder 'mystery' which is supposed to be set in Florida but is filmed entirely in Eilat in Isreal. Dreadful acting, ridiculous scenarios and laughable dialogue. The main character Nick Slaughter even does a voice-over throughout the film like Colt Seavers does in the 'Fall Guy' just to explain what the hell is going on. I saw this on a UK cable channel and if it weren't for the batteries in the remote going, I would have turned it off after ten minutes.

It gets 1 star for an incredible set of tits in the very first scene which belong to an un-credited actress. Apart from that, it's a waste of anybody's 90 minutes.

Ignore at all costs.
