Okay But Was on a Better Path
26 February 2017 | by bnwfilmbuffSee all my reviews

The first half of this movie was quite good with an intriguing plot and good characters. But the second half strained credibility. The evidences didn't fully work for me. And the ending was rushed. The acting was good. Andrew Kier was unrecognizable from his later roles as Professor Quatermass. Overall it's still an enjoyable viewing.
