Revenge of the Pink Panther, whilst not hitting the highs of The Pink Panther Strikes Again, is still top notch comedy. And a top notch movie at that. The transition from 'strikes again' to 'Revenge' is made by using more believable charcters and a more dangerous storyline. This slightly works against the comedy however, and Blake Edwards falls foul of his one most consistent problem, in paying more attention to the dramatic aspects instead of letting us indulge our funny bone. What makes the movie work is the cast. Peter Sellers is fantastic in his final appearnce as Clouseau. Finally he has given us the character he was striving to. It is apety this is his last Panther film, although Romance of The Pink Panther was in the works and Trail of the Pink Panther was completed after his death. Burt Kwouk is given more to do this time around and it is a pety allso that he wasn't allowed this much time on other and subsequent films. He shows real talent as a light comedian and an able comic foil to Clouseau. Dyan Cannon and Robert Loggia are well cast, and that final work off into the sunset by Clouseau is heart breaking. Thankyou Peter Sellers and Goodbye. You are sorely missed.
