Patrick Duffy should have never left Texas.

I don't have to give you any spoiler alerts because you will have figured out the plot and outcome before each scene unfolds. Why in the world, after you've put your spouse in hiding and the bad guy still manages to uncover that location, and then he manages to get away after killing a good guy, would your take your spouse back to your home? It just doesn't make sense. And how come the home of police officer, who knows a killer is after his wife, doesn't even have a barking dog for security?

Patrick Duffy, for those of you who are too young to remember the Dallas tv show, is a very nice looking man, with some great muscles, who couldn't act well enough to be in a porn flick. William Devane has been around a long time and played many roles. Even when he's a good guy he can give you the creeps. In this movie he's great at positioning sound devices, killing people, knowing intimate details about the lives of his victim and, even if he was in a coma, could out think Patrick Duffy's character.

Around the time this movie was made someone discovered that a muted trumpet gave some kind of atmosphere to what your were watching. 15
minutes into this movie I was sick of them.

All-in-all this a poor attempt at film making.

This is a 1990s made for tv movie about the cat and mouse between a murderer who kills bad people and bills the person who benefits from the bad person's death. Interesting original plot.

However, 1990s made for TV production values. 1980s? Clothes (women in shoulder pads and frilly lacy Frederick's of Hollywood night gowns). The killer has all kinds of watch and ink pen surveillance equipment but nobody in the movie has a cellphone or a laptop. Those aspects actually make the movie more interesting in a historical way.

I can't figure out why Amazon labeled this movie as from 2018.

THIS MOVIE HAS IT ALL.: A GREAT STORY LINE ABOUT A KILLER WHO KILLS THE BAD PEOPLE THAT HURT OTHERS AND THEN BILLS THE FORMER VICTIMS! PATRICK DUFFY SHINES AS A SEASONED POLICE CAPTAIN, BLACKMAILED INTO LEAVING TOWN BECAUSE OF AN AFFAIR GONE BAD! WILLIAM DEVANE SENDS SHIVERS UP THE VIEWER'S SPINE WITH HIS TERRIFYING PORTRAYAL OF THE KILLER SURVEILLANCE EXPERT. GRANTED THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN DUFFY AND HIS LEADING LADY IN THIS MOVIE STINKS, BUT HE DOES THE BEST HE CAN WITH AN ACTRESS THAT CAN'T ACT! A GREAT MOVIE FOR FANS OF THRILLERS!

an action crime movie from the end of the twentieth century

I discovered a new row thanks to a friend. "Action crime movies". This was the first one. I am not disturbed that this is in the old TV format 4:3 and stereo. The story is very interesting. I like the shooting. I like the very different violence. Does the villain always make a mistake?

The plot was ridiculous. By the end I was rooting for the killer hoping he would kill the idiot police captain.

Murder C.O.D is a fast-paced and very exciting tv thriller movie with two one of the greatest actors in B thriller's as
Patrick Duffy and William Devane. The plot is original and tell's the story about a cunning hitman(William Devane) who
random selects his clients and victims. He then commits the murder without the beneficiary's knowledge and sends them an
invoice for $100.000 with a threat that nonpayment will result in being framed for murder. Seasoned Police Detective Lt.
Murtaugh(Patric Duffy) must outwit the clever executioner in order to salvage both his job and his self-respect.

In my true opinion this thriller compare with some other great thriller movies is one of the five best thrillers's who I ever
watched in my life. I would recommended everyone to watch this sharp-edged thriller who like this type of genre.

Slow, boring, fraught over-the-top melodramatic acting. Flat relationship between main couple; no chemistry. Poor film quality.
