Low Budget, Weak Propaganda
7 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's amazing that George Sanders lowered himself to this. Things must have gotten bad for him. He is still a great screen presence, but he seems out of place among the crude voice-overs, TV drama scenery, and awkward direction. This is truly an awful film.

The plot centers around an Arab plot to murder Germans and cast the blame upon Israelis. Surprise surprise, it's an Israeli-West German co-production -- in other words Mossad-CIA propaganda. Childish and poorly made, this film illustrates the crude methods of the "intelligence" community.

It's got the feel of a Cheech and Chong spy thriller. It would be funny if it was clever - but it's not. It's pathetic and tiresome.
