Boring, just a waste of time!
4 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

There are a number of actors in this world who, in whatever they play, are worth seeing, maybe I will make a list one day. Such an actor is Bernard Blier, I just adore him, talented to the point of his fingers. Thanks to him I decided to see this. The movie has an original scene: two men, the good guy and a bad guy, jumping out of a plane together but, only the bad guy has a parachute. The good guy, played by Richard Harrison, strangle the bad guy and then he is gently falling somewhere in Rio de Janeiro. It's the only good thing in the whole film. Richard Harrison, as eurospy actor, is doing what he can. Giacomo Rossi Stuart, who plays the villain, is more compelling but, because the script is lousy, we get about 90 minutes of wasted life. All the other characters do not have a consistency. A weak film that makes a great disservice to the genre, already full of many other failures, all due to the same reason, the lack of a good script. The scenes shot in Brasilia resemble much like the scenes shot in identical conditions in "That Man from Rio" two years before, in 1964. But they have not by far from the drama of the film with Jean-Paul Belmondo. The great French actor Bernard Blier, only by his presence, he can not save anything.
