Goodness, only three stars out of ten on IMDb as of July 2008. This is one of the Treeline/Reelmedia Action Classics, originally made in 1977, re-released in 2004 on DVD. Starring Vic Morrow as Michael Cardiff, in a great disguise, "Funeral for an Assassin" opens with someone getting hit by a bus, and the South African police jumping headfirst into the investigation. Costars Sam Williams, Gaby Getz, and Peter VanDissel. Some great photography of South Africa, city scenes and countryside. But SO much talking. yakkity yakkity yak. and the plot seems overly complicated. The music all sounds like its from the "Mark Goodson, Bill Todman productions" or from the Streets of San Francisco, lots of trumpets and bongos. Ivan Hall only directed four more films after this one, all about killings... one way to spend an hour and a half....i guess..
