Too long; Koscina and Kinski underused
20 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

A handsome hero with a shady past and a knack for adventure (Horst Buchholz), a beautiful heroine assisting him (Sylva Koscina), evil masterminds and agents, kidnapped scientists, an exotic setting (Istanbul), fights & chases, etc: the stage is set for a 60's Bond-inspired spy adventure. This one begins pretty well, but loses its spark when Koscina (one of the most underrated spy girls of the decade

  • see also "Deadlier Than The Male") disappears for long sections.


Klaus Kinski also elevates the few scenes he is in (and has the best line in the film: "I am considered a good shot by those I have killed"!), but, like Koscina, he is underused. Buchholz is pretty good, both in the tongue-in-cheek and in the more violent moments, but the film is too long at 119 minutes, and about halfway through I began to lose the plot. At least it's better produced than many of these Bondian imitations, though the current VHS prints, fullscreen and worn-out, don't exactly do the production justice. (**)
