"Barcelona Kill"
20 December 2009 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This rather strange film is an attempt to combine an Italian giallo thriller and an Italian police action flick. This had been done a few times before--Massimo Dallamano's "What Have They Done to Your Daughters", Sergio Martino's "Suspected Death of a Minor", and Alberto DeMartino's "Blazing Magnums"--but the difference is that instead of being Italian movie, this was a British-Spanish co-production with a hack director (J.A. de la Loma), who was considerably less talented than Martino, Dallamano, or even DeMartino. So,needless to say, he doesn't pull this off very successfully.

The movie has two parallel threads. One has a reporter (Simon Andreu) and his shutterbug bride-to-be (Linda Hayden) witnessing the murder of the woman. They locate the woman's twin sister (Silvia Solar),but she is strangely unwilling to cooperate. Meanwhile, he has several run-ins with a police captain who is investigating the crime from another angle and who loses his favorite informer, a low-life named "Flipper", with whom he has an unusually affectionate relationship.Of course, there is a huge conspiracy involved in ALL of this headed by a powerful man called "the Count" (Eduardo Fajaro). Befitting the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach of the whole movie, this ring is not only involved in drug trafficking, as in half the European crime thrillers, but also in white slavery (teenage white slavery, naturally)like the other half. I eventually lost track of the convoluted plot.

The Spanish actors Simon Andreu and Eduardo Fajaro acquit themselves pretty well, but of course, they were both veterans of a lot of Italian films in these two genres. British actress Linda Hayden is much more out of her element and has little to do but look pretty, get kidnapped,and CONSTANTLY take pictures. Hayden was one of the most criminally underrated and generally wasted British actresses of her day. Her first film "Baby Love" was an erotic (especially for its time) psycho thriller that will probably never get released on DVD because she was only 15 or 16 when she made it. Her biggest starring role was in an even steamier psycho thriller "Expose", which was banned in its native Britain and hardly released outside of it. She was also in a lot of British sex comedies like the "Confessions of" series. But her most well-known role was "Angel Blake" the priest-seducing young temptress in the horror film "The Blood on Satan's Claw". Movies like this simply weren't her forte though. But then nobody really comes out of this one too well.
