| Not terrible...but not especially good either.
When the story begins, a notorious criminal is being acquitted in court. However, the case against him must have been pretty solid, as the judge tells the jurors that this is one of the worst miscarriages in justice he's ever seen. Soon, jurors start dying, as the mob didn't want anyone squealing about the case. This is the environment in which Agent K-7 of the FBI finds himself. Another big theme in this case is a man who is accused of murder .

While I certainly would agree that "Special Agent K-7" is an inoffensive B movie, I felt particularly let down by the super-cliched way that the killer was found...and then they implicate themselves for all sorts of illegal stuff...assuming it's not all some trap!! Lame, over-used and stupid...a bad way to end an otherwise acceptable film.

By the way, if you are a fan of silent comedies, look for Snub Pollard in a small role as a waiter. When the talking pictures arrived and Pollard's style of comedy passe, he chose instead to make his living doing bit parts and even a sidekick parts for B-westerns.
