Three out of five stars.
An out of work actor is called in to assist with a murder investigation on the Isle of Man and finds himself trapped – literally! -in his classic eighties role of Detective Mindhorn.
Some seriously witty gags and good performances help this new British comedy. Kinda ‘Toast of London’ meets ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’ with a healthy dose of ‘Bergerac’.
If you know your John Nettles as well as your Steve Austins, you’ll have a good, if very silly, time at the movies.
