Colonel Mostyn is the chief of a section of the British Security Services when they are embarrassed by the number of spies and defections. The Chief tells him to do something about it so he hires Boys Oaks as Agent L - The Liquidator, to assassinate people about to cause trouble. Although Boys likes the cars and the girls that his new position attracts he's not any good at it. He's also got a phobia about flying that makes jetting off to exotic places a bit of an embarrassment. Written by Steve Crook <>

Wasted talents
12 December 2001 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

I just saw "The liquidator". I think it is one of Rod´s worst pictures.

There is a funny and promising beginning but after ten or fifteen minutes it only is boring. Rod is fun to watch but his character is badly developed.

The rest of the movie is very weak. That is a pity because there are talented actors in it, a capable director and a nice basic idea.
