Pardon me, can you spare a script?
2 June 2008 | by (long island) – See all my reviews

Christopher Mitchum is a guy who does effects for a movie company. He gets involved in a theft of a million dollars when he gives Linda Blair -- looking incredibly frumpy for a mob hooker -- a ride in his car. Then, well, one mob fights another, both are after Mitchum, they kidnap hiswife, he kidnaps Blair, they steal the money back . . . then Mitchum uses his effects "skills" to fight the mobs.

We're supposed to believe that Mitchum uses real bullets, rockets and bombs in his work and they can be bought at the local electronics store. He drives a truck outfitted with weaponry that would make James Bond drool. Yeah, right.

Mitchum and Blair fumble through their roles, but look great compared to the rest of the cast, who only have to utter "mob" phrases ("Get him!" "You go around that way!") and fall down when shot.

The only reason to watch this stinker is for the great Gordon Mitchell, who plays the mob boss. He seems embarrassed but gives it his all. Imagine the star of URSUS AGAINST THE CYCLOPS being embarrassed!
