Young man must avoid his father's killer, but doesn't know why.
2 September 1998 | by WistfulSee all my reviews

As a fan of Geraint Wyn Davies, I wanted to see this film because he had top billing. The talents of Mr. Wyn Davies, as well as those of excellent actor Christopher Plummer, were wasted in the movie due, in part, to a poorly written script and inferior directing. Although Mr. Wyn Davies is a gifted, versatile actor, the character he portrayed was flat, meaning that the audience was never shown any depth. He was simply a remorseless killer with unrevealed motivation. Any third rate actor could have filled the part. In addition, the conflicts of the movie were superficial and the romantic elements implausible. Moreover, there were entirely too many shots of walking shoes, a device which became trite rather than adding to a feeling of suspense.
