Although the plot has elements of interest in it, this is very much a lacklustre, not to mention dull, little production. The storyline is so unfocused that we never actually see the kidnapped boy throughout the production. Instead there are lots of scenes of chatting and characters wandering from place to place without the plot moving forward. Robert Hutton is a weak and ineffectual lead who routinely gets biffed over the head which doesn't really give the audience much belief in his character.
The supporting cast is better, with funny cameos from the likes of Warren Mitchell and Michael Balfour. But the pace is slow and stodgy and the leads are uninteresting. Even worse, the film is padded out with long and endless scenes of dance rehearsals and a woman singing, sometimes abruptly cutting to such interludes right in the middle of an important plot development! It's amateur film-making, it really is, and helps to sink THE SICILIANS throughout.
