| Movie was good -- previous reviewer insane
Not the best Spenser film, but then again it wasn't that true to the book it was based on (which, while good, was not the best Spenser tale).

I am really just commenting on the previous poster, who made an asinine comment that the A&E movie adaptations were superior to the Robert Urich / Avery Brooks films (and t.v. show) I love Joe Montegna. Don't get me wrong. But he is as much the Spenser from Parker's novels as he is Tinkerbell. He is too small and too slight of build. Spenser's ancestry is from the British isles, and no one would ever mistake Montegna for being anything other than he is, Italian. Spenser boxed heavyweight, Montegna, in shape, would barely be a middleweight. Plus, the Hawk in the A&E films was substantially younger than Spenser, and they should be the same age.

All in all, read the books. Then watch the original movies for a "truer" adaptation of some of the great mystery novels of the past 50 years.
