a real rip-off
18 April 2003 | by jonasgrSee all my reviews

I love The Pursaders but only gave this "movie" a 3, strange? Not at all.

When I purchased this movie on DVD I was expecting a movie, but it's not. Instead you'll find two separate tv-episodes where the first episode has its end after texts removed, and the second episode has its titles (including the marvelous theme song) removed. Basicly, this is what I call a hoax.

The first episode is even a cheap shot episode, all scenes take place indoors. The second one is a little better and here you'll find the highlight of this "movie", a car chase with Danny Wilde's Ferrari Dino 246GT.
