Storyline

The Assassination Bureau has existed for decades (perhaps centuries) until Diana Rigg begins to investigate it. The high moral standing of the Bureau (only killing those who deserve it) is called into question by her. She puts out a contract for the Bureau to assassinate its leader on the eve of World War I. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Goofs

In the scene, about 40-45 minutes in, where Lord Bostwick visits General Van Pinck whilst the latter is at fencing practice, you will see a map of Europe on the wall. Although this film ostensibly takes place before World War I, the map is of post-Versailles Europe, c.1925-1939. See more »

Worth watching for Reed and Rigg
7 November 1999 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is an enjoyable enough lightweight romp, with an array of locations and actors that is perhaps excessive.

Oliver Reed is suavely bucaneering as the main protaganist, while the other main star, Diana Rigg of Avengers fame, does a very well-judged comic performance as the feminist journalist in 1910. It's a shame she didn't appear in more films. No other actors get much of a chance to shine, as there are far too many minor characters.

The writing is OK; you get the feeling that there should be more laughs than there are. Still, it's an enjoyable enough way to spend an hour and a half.

Rating:- *** (out of *****)
