Muddled and horribly dubbed Canadian crime drama
14 November 2004 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Terribly dubbed into English Canadian movie where the actors look and sound like their a bunch of ventriloquists without having dummies to throw their voices at. Even the non-spoken sounds and noises in the movie aren't even synchronized to where they come across like far away echos.

Floyd, Fabio Testi, is just released from a Montreal jail after serving six months for car theft and is given 48 hours by the Canadian Government to leave the country. Floyd is picked up by his criminal associate Joe, Eli Wallach, then in what seems like ten minutes the two of them hold up a jewelry store shoot one of the costumers, critically, and are chased by the police all over the city of Montreal. After all that they split up in two cars and head across the Canadian border to Newport Maine.

They split up all right but for some strange reason Joe let's Floyd keep the entire amount of jewels that they just robbed, some $500,000.00 worth that they both agree to meet in Newport to split them up between themselves; why didn't they do it right there? Floyd driving on the icy and frozen highway like an idiot runs his car off the road and breaks it axle leaving him stranded at the "Last Chance Motel" just across the border from the state of Main in Canada leaving Joe in Newport left waiting for him and his share of the jewels.

The unbelievable story goes on with Floyd stuck at the motel and not being able to get across the border to Portland to get to Joe with the jewels. This has Joe thinking that Floyd is trying to take off with the entire load of stolen jewelry. At the motel Floyd falls in love with the motel owners wife gorgeous Michelle Nolton, Ursula Andress, who's, unknown to Floyd at the time, a bit flaky. The local cops come to the motel to check out Floyd and anyone else there trying to cross the border in connection to the Montreal jewel robbery and are then told by the police radio that the two robbers were caught, obviously a false alarm.

Earlier in the film Floyd and Michelle had a roll in bed and when Floyd comes back from the police and checks his motel room he finds that the jewels are missing! who took them? Michelle? Or was it the other half dozen or so people in the motel at the time? If Floyd doesn't find them and split them up with Joe who's getting a little restless waiting he'll end up with his head split in half.

if it wasn't for the aforementioned bad dubbing the movie "Stateline Motel" would have been a pretty good crime drama. The fact that we see Ursala Andress undressed and nude in a really hot and sizzling love scene with Floyd was more then worth the rental coast alone. The ending was pretty bland but very unintentionally funny with the final confrontation between Joe Michelle and Floyd. The shooting of Joe by both Michelle and Floyd looked and sounded as if their guns went off some 5 to 10 or so miles away; thats how long it would have taken for the sound waves to reach the audience. But in reality the gun shots that did Joe in went off at point blank range no more then ten feet away from him.
