MINDHORN
***
Set in the Isle of Man and directed by Sean
Foley this is a mildly amusing pastiche derived from
the Bergerac TV detective genre set in Jersey. The
central idea is that a potential serial killer, at large
on the island, is delusional enough
to believe that his hero Mindhorn is a real person
rather than a small screen gumshoe. Billed as `hilarious madcap
comedy' it is carried by a professional cast from the second
division, supported by two or three cameo appearances
from the premier league. With a running time of less than 90
minutes, it is a merry enough nostalgia trip.
