I'd rather spend two hours in the sewer....
17 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

First of all, you never see the city of Tangiers. They used the name as a bait because during its peak, Tangier was mysterious and exotic. There's nothing mysterious and exotic about this movie. The acting is AWFUL. The dialogue is moronic. And all the scenes took place in a two by four. The back of the box claims that the picture shown was live on location in Morocco. Bulls***!!! This picture was closer to Dublin than Tangier. Ronnie Cox looked as if he was wearing a bad rug. And nothing like the tag line on the back of the VHS tape...."Try a drop of blackmail.....Garnish with beautiful women....Sprinkly liberally with murder.....Stir well till all fizzes with excitement...." Apparently, the person who wrote this must have been living off the royalties of this movie, because he was starving! And as for the beautiful women? Phyllis Diller (before makeup) could have run away with 1st prize.
