Entertaining, yet ultimately disappointing film from the famed crime author Jose Giovanni.
It tells a story of a mismatched group of men trying to liberate a NATO politician from the hands of terrorist kidnappers.
The dirty dozen this is not, yet it offers some thrills in the form of personality clashes within the group. Overall this one is rather dull and cliched take on the old standard. Contains some spectacular rock climbing sequences.
Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
