An all-around sleaze is found murdered (and the discovery of his body is, I have to admit,pretty damn funny). All sorts of evidence points to hot-tempered cop Burt Reynolds, and he ischarged with murder. Defending him is a very wooden Theresa Russell. She and Reynolds areconvinced he was framed, and they begin to dig. There are loose ends all over the place by thetime the film wraps up, but it is decently entertaining along the way.
The sound …s limited to 2.0, but the mix is solid. Music and effects are good, and there issome pretty decent creation of a sound environment. The voices are, however, slightly surroundthemselves, and there is an occasional hum on the soundtrack.
Sigh. Another exercise in cropping down to fullscreen. At least the spoiled compositionsdon’t leap out at you. The colours and contrasts are fine, and the blacks nice and deep. Thepicture is a bit soft and grainy, however.
Nothing at all. The menu is basic.
An undistinguished release, but at least I didn’t regret my 99 minutes.
