User Reviews

Nonsense

The perfect example of European crap that invaded screens in the mid sixties and early seventies. Productions from Germany, Italy, France, Yugoslavia, Spain or even England. We seldom found US actors, lost in these features. Some are good, a very few excellent, but the most are forgettable, because too much expectable in the topics and very badly acted. With no talent, only for food or paying electricity bills.

The heist sequence at the beginning of the film is exciting - I am a great heist movie lover - but the following, the escaping of the robbers in the country side, where they hide in a mansion, becomes suddenly boring. Talkative and predictable. You guess conflicts among the hoods because of a girl, and you presume good.

The ending is not better. A trial sequence that seems no to finish.

Forget it.

Bernard Knowles gives here his last movie. Sad swan song.
