SK flick, a combination of many entertaining things
20 September 2017 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

Here's a cute entertaining little SK thriller. Of course, not up there, with the mainstream ones, we've come to know and love, this one can be adored for it's slick, snappy cuteness. Another reason, the film is headlined by one of the coolest new, and busiest actors, who mostly plays bad guy roles. Here, Madsen, is in top form, with a different hair color, and shades lighter, real good looking in the day. Here he's a detective/former quarterback, on the trail of a handsome sex killer, Pommy accent and all. Here our maniac, who can pack of a punch, which had me reminiscing with the killer in Fear City, is slashing up young girls, in some bloody scenes. One of the first victims, appearing in this is a prime example of how women can be bitches. Madsen also likes chasing young skirts, half his age, and, a touch I liked, is he's asthmatic, so he's got his work cut out for him. It's good to see him in a role like this, and forgetting Mr Blonde, this is one of my most enjoyable performances from him. Lisa Bonet, as a reporter, and a romantic interest of Mdsen's puts in a good performance, where the interesting and cool casting playoff, does gel. It's good to see her back on screen. Nick Stretch (Business For Pleasure) is too cool for school as the sex killer, where the mutual hatred shared between the two increases the likeness for this movie, which is very entertaining, with a couple of twists, but like I said, it's not in the league of the Manhunters, Lams, Sevens, but as a B grade one, it's very good. Check out this Madsen, definite pic.
