Next To Worthless
5 October 2007 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

There is one redeeming feature: the gorgeous Ms Bisset. The acting is dreadful. Even Bisset is terrible. Forget the fact that it is a remake and forget great views of Cape Town (because this is a very dark film, and I don't mean noir).

My first attempt at this submission was rejected because it contains less than ten lines, but what else is there to say?

OK, I can say that even the music is formulaic in the sense that all spy movies were in the 60s. This is the sort of movie where you want to say "What were they thinking?"

OK? It is hard to imagine that IMDb encourages wasting cyber space.
