Morgan an international privateer serving prison time for allegedly stealing $40 million, is recruited by the CIA on a covert mission with agent Kim Stacy of posing as a drug dealer to rescue a scientist held captive on a remote Caribbean island by a brutal dictator. Written by
This routine thriller, based on a Mickey Spillane novel, sees action-man Christopher George paired up with a female CIA agent to help rescue a kidnapped scientist from a remote island jail. It sounds pretty exciting, but unfortunately it isn't, thanks to a sluggish script and by-the-numbers direction. The film's major fault is a limited budget which excludes any decent intrigue or action sequences up until the last twenty minutes, during which a prison break and a car chase are crammed into a breakneck climax. Up until then, it's a boring affair, with the actors struggling to make sense of senseless dialogue and dull attempts to be 'cool' and modern.
Up until now, I'd only seen George in '80s-era exploitation fare, so seeing him as a handsome, slick super-agent in the Bond model was a bit of a surprise. I couldn't help but find the script beneath his talents, though. Mimieux, so well remembered as Weena in THE TIME MACHINE, doesn't get a great deal to work with either other than some mild flirting in those excruciating drawn out scenes of hotel bed-hopping. I looked out for Yvonne De Carlo but sadly couldn't spot her without her MUNSTERS makeup. Director Tay Garnett, at the end of a long career in TV and film, displays a talent that can be best described as 'workmanlike'.
