Entertaining, Good But Not Great
22 March 2019 | by clintstevensSee all my reviews

Like reading a story in Ellery Queen's mystery magazine, not Shakespeare, but entertaining none the less.

As is the usual, there are moments that stretch belief, but hey, it's just a TV movie, so just enjoy it as such.

Michael Blake does a good job as the villain...good looking with an icy cold stare. If I was a teacher and had a student like him, I'd switch professions!
