Flat and boring
15 October 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

A man employed by a big company working for the government is killed. So the investigation begins. Expect no surprise here. If you want desperately to sleep, you'll need no pills with such a tepid tale, believe me The only interesting point is Telly Savalas and Sidney Pollack in some early performances of theirs. Maybe it could be OK for most of you, but certainly not me. I need surprises, not necessarily action and violence, and also powerful performances and sequences. Here, nothing of this. I expect more from a Wally Grauman work. He did far better in his life. You also have an off voice, as we had in other crime and exposés series or even films.
