Brief Synopsis – A man returns to his home town to discover that his father has been murdered and decides to investigate the crime himself.

My Take on it – Terrible film that fails to work on any level.

Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy are both talented actors, but neither is able to make this story feel more enjoyable.

The plot moves along in a very predictable and simple way that fails to be engaging enough to the viewer.

The film also has a nice supporting cast that includes David Caruso and Paul Winfield.

The way that things play out is done in a very uninteresting way and this was quite a chore to get through despite it having a runtime of less than 90 minutes.

The story is suppose to be really mysterious and thrilling, but it instead comes across as being quite boring in the way that it presents things to the viewer.

The soundtrack, the costumes and the story give off a very 80’s vibe that helps make it nostalgic, but even that can’t help make things find a way to be more enjoyable or engaging throughout.

The dialogue is quite cheesy and doesn’t manage to come across in a more serious way which also takes so much away from things here.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Jenny Wright originally was cast in the lead female role of Annie Rayford. Ally Sheedy replaced Wright after re-writes. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
