More info: IMDb

Tagline: Dirty Money, Dirty Secrets...

Plot: When a Swiss bank finds that the confidentiality of some of its more vulnerable customers has been compromised it calls in an American investigator, who soon uncovers a web of deceit and blackmail. With old debts being paid off his own health is soon in danger, but at least he starts to gets to know one of the bank's female customers pretty well.

My rating: 5/10

Will I watch it again? Noop.

#46 on Dusk to Dawn Drive-In Trash-o-Rama Show Vol. 1 (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

It's right down the middle; it's neither that good nor that bad. It's an average crime thriller. It was nice, though, seeing Hess in a role where he's not 'crazy' for a change. Klaus Doldinger's score was uninteresting, the plot was nothing to write home about, the performances were OK and, being filmed in Switzerland, the scenery was beautiful. There's absolutely no reason to or not to recommend this to anyone outside of fans of any of the particular stars. In a word...meh.
