Audience Reviews for The China Lake Murders

Not bad for a made for cable movie. Good cast, Tom Skerritt is well cast, Michael Parks is very effective as well. The story is good, it's a fine mystery and it is suspenseful and it always held my interest. It does always look made for television though, at least the performances rise above that.
