More pejorative fun from the one and only Bruno Mattei
10 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The ever dependable Miles O'Keeffe stars in this enjoyable action yarn as a highly decorated soldier who is persuaded to undertake a dangerous reconnaissance mission in Vietnam whilst simultaneously searching for his son there.

There are some commendable action scenes throughout and of course, this being a Bruno Mattei action film, you can count on plenty of BIG and beautiful explosions.

A good assemble of B-movie regulars including Donald Pleasance, Bo Svenson, Ottaviano Dell'Acqua, Luciano Pigozzi, Mike Monty and Massimo Vanni make up the rest of the cast and they all put in fine performances in their respective roles (although Svenson's Russian accent is, shall we say, severely wanting in a number of scenes)

On the down side however, I must say that the promised spectacular climax proves to be anything but with Svenson as the arch villain meeting a most unimpressive end.

Another notably stupid point concerns O'Keefe's son who undergoes such a dramatic change of heart and personality overnight at the end of the film that one would be perfectly justified in assuming he was suffering from some form of schizophrenia! Still, in such a film, any such criticisms are trivial and in the end one has to judge the movie on its merits i.e. on entertainment value.

In this respect, whilst not a classic by any means, Double Target comes across well and certainly delivers the goods for its running time, being a fun flick and one that should certainly appease less discriminating action junkies and B-Movie aficionados in general.
