A fair example of Constantine with a good cast
25 November 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Of the Eddie Constantine films, this is only a fair example. It's still fun however and you could do a lot worse than this tongue-in-cheek adventure. Eddie reprises his role as Lemmy Caution, the hero of Peter Cheyney's novels, this time in search of a scientist supposedly kidnapped for his formula for a new lightweight solid fuel.

Constantine was the star of many adventures in France in the early sixties and the whiskey-obsessed Caution was one of his most popular roles. This particular film boasts a good cast which is where the most fun is derived but the whole thing is rather silly. I expect that by this time it was just a matter of giving the audience what they wanted without making things too complicated or heavy.

Director Bernard Boderie had previous experience working with Constantine in Women Are Like That and Ladies Man. Here he keeps the show moving but lets things slide uncomfortably into farce towards the end with a silly, slapstick fight scene used to finish off the gang. While the film is not an outright spoof the comedy comes often enough that no one would dare take it seriously, especially with Eddie winking or chatting into the camera several times.

The Paul Misraki score is fun and jazzy as one would expect although it's not as prevalent as one would hope. If you're in the mood for light fare this film will probably do but don't blame me if you're still hungry for a juicy spy flick afterwards.
