Wow. Yul Brynner must have been forcing a contract rider!
24 October 2012 | by (The Moon) – See all my reviews

The movie itself is a pedestrian crime movie that takes a tiny premise and extends it over the length of a movie. Not a good thing.

So the movie basically stinks. But if you want a hoot, watch it to see Yul Brynner's horrifying attempt to sound like a New York "wiseguy" while swimming through his natural Russian accent. It's not so much the accent being silly, as the dialog being something from the "Dead End Kids".

If people paid to see this in the theater, maybe it was a good escape since cable TV and the internet hadn't been invented yet. Or maybe they asked for their money back.

Really dreadful.
