Armand Assante looks high and low for his army buddy's killer
7 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first version of "I, the Jury" (1953) was a noir. "I, the Jury" (1982) is not a neo-noir. It is an action film built around a detective hero, combined with a large dose of CIA hanky-panky and a killer who is a pawn of the CIA. The action scenes are very well-directed and satisfying. The plot is fairly complex and somewhat murky as to details. This is more than compensated for by a high number of sharp lines, story ideas and novel situations. Assante is determined to find his friend's killer, no matter what. He's unafraid. He usually finds some clever way or approach to make headway in every situation. His secretary (Laurene Landon) is tough and smart. He's helped, up to a point, by policeman Paul Sorvino. A key player is the woman who runs the CIA's false clinic, and that's Barbara Carrera, later to be a Bond girl and warming up for it here at a high temperature. One should not expect a movie to be faithful to a book or its characters, and movies made from Mickey Spillane's books have always proved this. This one is no exception, so one cannot expect to see Mike Hammer brought to life as in the books. Certainly, Assante would not be cast in the part if that were the objective. What he brings to the movie is confidence, swagger, an ability not to be taken in, cleverness, solid anger at times, and humor at other times. Geoffrey Lewis provides his usual excellent support, but in one sequence only. There is female nudity too. Who's complaining?

Overall, I enjoyed this film.
