this film is set in the Egyptian narcotics bureau.It is commanded by the astringent Eric Portman and he is assisted by neophyte Laurence Harvey.At first the film is reasonably interesting,particularly as it was made on location in Egypt.However the plot becomes too complex and i rapidly lost interest in the proceedings.The climax when it comes is so lame it is unbelievably bad.Difficult to understand why they could allow such a feeble ending to a dranatic story.Portman gives his standard performance eg Millions Like Us.Harvey plays the sort of role that he could do in his sleep.Generally this film is a great disappointment.
