Hard to know what this film is trying to be...
7 November 2011 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Hard to know what this film is trying to be... farce, thriller, kitchen-sink drama..? The plot is so improbable and the characters so caricatured that you are really not sure whether you are expected to laugh or not. Black-and-white scenes of London in 1960, and the jazz score, are diverting, but not really enough to compel. Dennis Price and William Hartnell are always watchable, but the script does not make the most of their considerable palette of acting skill. The ending, in which the anti-heroes are killed in what appears to be poetic justice, seems out of character with the rest of the film: suddenly a strong moral tone is injected where none existed before.
