The baddies are the worse bit about this well above average tv movie. Oh, I suppose the script is a bit iffy in places but not too awful and in fact mostly surprisingly fun.

I didn’t see anything but good production from camera work through to sets and locations. Didn’t expect it to be difficult to have a go at (I got the Bluray for £1!) and although I’ll never be watching it again, there are very strong performances from everyone except, sadly, Robert and the mercenaries. Don’t think it’s his fault. The baddies lines and dramatic pauses are straight out the 50s – bit too dramatic. The mercs, though, are beyond help and are really awful.  The cops and sidekicks, however, normally a source of ridiculous background for setting up the heroes, are good enough to have their own series!

Horror? No, I mean there’s a wolf but don’t prepare the back of the sofa or your favourite scare-cushion. He’s an obvious CGI and animatronic with big dental problems. I’ll put it down as a horror but it’s a bit of fun really.

Nicely done.

Bluray Extras: nope.

 

Keep DVD?
No.

Watch if on TV?
No

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Didn’t think I’d be saying this but deserves a snog.
