Our Score
Based on the novel A Candle for the Dead by Hugh Marlowe (aka Jack Higgins), this downbeat thriller stars Tom Bell as an IRA man on the run, who is reluctantly recruited to blow up a British-owned power station. It's efficiently made, if unsurprising, and familiar American actor Ed Begley is worth watching as the fanatical Irish mastermind behind the scheme.
