Quaint Move
13 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First of all I must say I love this film. I remember watching it about 30 years ago, and I recall enjoying it a lot.

Some people will say the Ringer is predictable I would beg to differ slightly, I would say that its predictability adds to its unpredictably if that makes sense!

It's a fairly short film which suits me with my diminishing concentration levels, great acting, Herbert Lom playing a typical bad guy, a young Denholm Elliott and William Hartnell playing a cheeky cockney villain.

I for one think its great entertainment, bought a copy from Amazon and have watched it twice in 3 days. Marvellous ending by the way. Enjoy it

Nick
