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.

no real violence really weird movie. you would think by the cover it is good but it really doesn't make much sense. the narration is weird at some points. there are only a couple of action scenes that are pretty weak.
