Stone cold detective work
12 September 2014 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Retired cop Jonathan Stone (Richard Crenna) moves to Seattle after his wife dies and gets implicated in a murder case where he is a chief suspect.

The local cop wants to pin it all on Stone, only a local socialite Annie Hayes (Beverly D'Angelo) is willing to help him out.

From the outset Crenna looks too old to be in this film. It was a surprise to see Jennifer O'Neill almost unrecognisable as the dying wife, D'Angelo looked gorgeous but why would she waste her time on Crenna who is as interesting as dishwater. There are several interesting character actors who are also wasted here.

As for the story, poor, plodding nonsense. The shock on Crenna's face is nothing compared what you will feel at the reveal. You never get to know the characters or care about them so the mystery will just make you shrug your shoulders.

The standards of cop television movies in the 1990s had really hit rock bottom.
