Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This made for television movie rarely rises above ordinary. The cast in general is good though, especially John Forsythe. Fairly suspenseful and it has some clever twists. The score is a little overdone. Watchable, but not very memorable. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member 52/100.
