They Don`t Make `Em Like This Nowadays
9 October 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

My instant reaction on watching this in 2003 is the portrayal of the Muslim faith . Without giving too much away the plot centres around protecting a Muslim icon , while Muslims who are not exacatly treated with total reverance aren`t shown as being blood thirsty killers calling for jihad against westerners either . Compare this movie with something like TRUE LIES and you`ll see how differently Hollywood treats Islam these days .

That said I don`t want anyone to think this is a piece of must see cinema . YOU CAN`T WIN `EM ALL is basically a buddy B movie made to shown before a main feature , if you`re under 35 you won`t be able to remember the days when you paid money at the box office and got to see TWO feature films . Charles Bronson plays a world weary skipper while Tony Curtis - Who shocked cinema audiences in THE BOSTON STRANGLER two years before - plays an irritating smart ass similar to his role in THE PERSUADERS in early 1920s Turkey . Watch out for the anachronism when someone mentions " Starting world war two " which is strange because no one ever spoke about " World war one " in those days , not even the cast of PEARL HARBOR
