not as bad as all that
8 August 2013 | by deschreiberSee all my reviews

This is a typical made-for-TV movie, so holding it to the standards of some major studio production is hardly appropriate. It's not quite as predictable as some reviewers say, although the ending can be seen from a long way off. But the plot keeps the action moving nicely. Michael Riley makes a very good villain--not some menacing, snarling, sadistic uber-villain but a just a typical small-time crook, totally self-centred and certain he's a much cooler person than everyone else who lives in the "square" world. Little Annie Boivaird can be very charming with her heart-melting smile; giving her a little larger part in the film would have been a good idea. Because Alexandra Paul is in front of the camera for most of the film, she should have been rounded out as a character more so we could see her as something more than just the worried mother. You don't want to go out and buy this on DVD, but if it comes up on television, and you have nothing else to do, it's better than a lot else that's on.
