Poor Stephen Boyd
1 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The guy who was a star in "Ben Hur" finds himself in this awful spy drama. I realize that much of it is dubbed from the Italian, but the dialogue is laughable, the characters are wooden and stupid. There is a bunch of judo and karate that looks silly. I'm sure that this emerged out of the James Bond era, but this has nothing to recommend it. The bad guys want money, and somehow they don't have to do much other than ask for it. Then there's the insipid byplay between the newlyweds. Thank God they married each other so they wouldn't bore anyone else to death. This film was part of a collection. Sometimes, it seems, the compilers of these sets must get really desperate. Anyway, the resolution is unsatisfying. There is no real direction, just random action. Watch an old sixties/seventies spy show and you will have a much better time.
