Jack Wagner Plays The Heavy To The Hilt
8 February 2008 | by zippychimpSee all my reviews

This film originally aired on NBC in February, 1988. It is notable for being Jack Wagner's first telefilm. He had recently left General Hospital and soap stardom and was coming off a national tour of "West Side Story" when he did this film. In it, he plays against type and is the villain hit-man. This was a refreshing change since he had found stardom as the hero/good guy Frisco Jones on daytime television. A very well-done made for TV movie that is also notable for being one of Chynna Phillips' early roles as she stars as Jason Bateman's character's girlfriend in the film. They don't show this on TV very often - if at all - but it is worth seeking out to see many of it's stars when they were young and just getting started.
