Routine programmer
31 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

And so Butcher's Films churn out another routine programmer without much in the way to distinguish it from a dozen other, similar productions. MAN FROM TANGIER is a film that spends every penny of its tight budget on exotic locales and a varied cast while at the same time telling the most ordinary subject imaginable. This one hinges on a case of mistaken identity - the identity of a COAT - if you can believe that...

The set-up is that a crook's coat gets mixed up with the coat of an American actor, thus transporting the latter into a world of crime. There are the requisite glamorous women and double crosses, and a few action scenes dotted here and there, but this is never more than a very typical, very ordinary, would be thriller.
