Mystery destination
10 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

FBI agent Paul Kelly (Allan) and reporter Lola Lane (Pat) are due to get married for the billionth time when a secret assignment is handed to Kelly and his friend Larry Parks (Tommy). This leads to the cancellation of the wedding and a secret trip on a ship filled with the country's most notorious criminals.

The film is OK, nothing too standout. It starts in a jokey fashion and takes a while to get going. There is some tension once we get onto the ship as there is a power struggle between villains for who is top dog. There are a few unrealistic sections, eg, the lack of numbers in officers escorting these villains and the lack of shooting from the officers when unrest breaks out. We also get a rather gentlemanly Trevor Bardette (Madek) who is quick to concede defeat to the better man. I don't think so! However, Cy Kendall (Condor) makes a good thug.

The film wraps up rather quickly and it's all rather unrealistic. Where on earth are all these villains being deported to given that they are all American?
