Pretty forgettable crime drama
1 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack Carson plays a recovered alcoholic. It seems the previous two years he had been drinking so much that he blacked out and doesn't remember a thing. Then a seriously drunk man shows up and passes out near his place. He has a piece of paper in his pocket that implies that Carson (during his blackout stage) had been involved in some crimes under a different name. Carson hides the paper but then thugs start threatening him and his family and people are being killed.

Not a bad plot but badly handled. Carson (a good actor) appears to be drugged while making this. The plot drags out and all the supporting actors just seem to be going through the motions. The ultimate resolution also seems more than a little unlikely. A VERY mediocre crime drama.
