I recently got this on DVD and I was surprised that it is not a half bad heist film! This might seem at first glance to be a low budget European flick, but if you stick with it there are some decent fight scenes, one pretty cool car chase (made the way when car chases really WERE car chases and not just done with crap computer effects like parts of the Gone In Sixty Seconds remake, where the drivers don't appear to be in any real jeopardy) and a surprisingly good heist story complete with some good plot twists and turns.
The film is dated in parts but all in all it holds up quite well. And Kirk Douglas gives a good performance as an over the hill thief wanting to pull one last score. All in all, The Master Touch is not bad way to spend an afternoon. Ciao, ciao, baby.
