Vintage drive-in exploitation B-movie fare.

Audience Reviews for The Glove

The poster artwork suggests violent grindhouse-style exploitation, but the reality is far more subdued. It's more of a slow burn modern noir, with John Saxon's ex-cop bounty hunter for hire filling the role of the traditional private eye narrator. Interestingly his riot-glove-wielding target turns out to be a decent citizen turned vigilante, rendering the primary struggle a conflict of conscience. I was both disappointed at the misdirection and surprised by the unexpected depth of this strange little film.

I have to say that I could live without John Saxon's grizzled P.I. styled voice over, but otherwise this was a good bit of fun, feeling a bit like a long episode of a television show that I'd not seen before.

Another decent time-waster, but nothing that will change your life or anything.
