U.F.O.s never die
28 November 1999 | by (Toulouse, France) – See all my reviews

I was surprised when I learned this movie had such a bad reputation. I'm not ashamed to admit it's one of my favorite Hammer films of all time. Stuart Whitman is fine as the tired-looking assassin with a vengeance. Cushing's cameos are hugely enjoyable while Anton Diffring is at home playing the villain. The rest looks like a Bruce Lee film (it was co-produced by the Shaw Brothers) and the music is funky like hell. SHATTER has its share of slow moments and is at times unintentionally funny. So what? Action, fun, great actors will keep you satisfied and begging for more. Unfortunately here was no more to come (this could have been the basis of a great TV series for example). I don't know what Monte Hellman's role was in helming this (apparently to rescue it from director Michael Carreras' wreckage)...
