    The plot that Cliff gets involved in suffers from some rather funky logic, as the explanation for why the woman was in the trunk fails to explain why the man responded in such an openly hostile manner after Cliff made his discovery. I mean surely he knew how such a discovery would appear, and opening fire with a shotgun is not likely to make anyone believe it was all just an innocent game. The explanations' failure to address this point didn't help matters much either. Still, the scene where Cliff confronts the trigger-happy highway patrol officers made me smile, as did the scene where the officer learned what had prompted Cliff's behavior. The action also does a nice job of playing up the idea that Cliff's new body is pretty tough, as he's run down by a speeding car, and absorbs a hail of bullets without taking any real damage. The brief visits with the rest of the team also do a nice job of playing up the idea that the entire team is in complete disarray. Read Full Review
