  • Critical reception

    Avelyman thought the film "has a few neat moments, but is pretty much filler" ; while TV Guide called it an "interesting British attempt to put an American-style, hard-boiled detective in their own yard, (it) even goes as far as naming the hero "Mike" instead of the usual "Geoffrey" or "Ronnie."
