      Audience Member Solid, well-acted pilot for TV series that wasn't picked up. I'll watch William Shatner in anything, and here uncharacteristically he plays a villain. Loved director's subdued, quiet approach to the material, and that genuine 70s feel! Worth a watch. DVD closer to 95 mins. For the younger viewers, worth catching to see Chris Pine's father at work (and the family resemblance). Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This YAWN law drama centers on some dude trying to beat a heroin rap and a mob hit which leads to....more boring stuff. You know this is bad when you can't even tell the characters' names and the acting is stressed to make the law terms seem more dramatic when it really bored me like lectures up at Binghamton. I only recall Leopold since it was said about 100 times and Wallace played by Ham Shatner. I gave an extra point just for the funny mustache Shat was sporting. There's also some lady dying of some disease but that's quickly forgotten and a cool mob hit featuring a giant street sweeper. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This received decent reviews on various sites, but I found it a strictly routine television made movie. One big plus is a terrific performance from Richard Castellano. Otherwise the acting is fair. For me, it was nothing special. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member 56/100.
