An awful and insulting movie with an awful cast....
19 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

In virtually every respect this film is not just bad but wrong.It is the usual mix of adventure and romance except that it has not been mixed,the plot veers from one to the other and back again which mitigates against any feeling of tension or continuity.The acting is uniformly not acting. Robert Wagner is his usual slick-haired loose-vowelled plastic, Joan Collins, ridiculously over-wardrobed for an airline receptionist, alternates her three facial expressions,but not necessarily at the right time,and Ken Scott, a tall and handsome man, only has one expression to play with. As for the usually reliable Edmond O'Brien ,he just goes over the top as a two-faced hearty backslapping villain. The worst aspect of the film, though, is its attitude towards its host country, Japan. All the Americans in the cast act as if they are in Miami, bombing around the country as if they were at home. At one point Wagner, a big grin on his face says "Ah,Madame Butterfly" to a Japanese waitress at a garden party. And she is made to laugh and enjoy this condescension!!
