For LVC fans mostly...
2 August 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Even tho Lee Van Cleef's part is Very Minor, and in one of those odd coincidences, it is very appropos as his Last Film, there are aspects of this movie that are worth viewing.

Hey, this isn't Cassablanca or anything, but it's fun in its way, and the further you get and pay attention the stranger it gets!

It tries valiantly to be the poor cousin of JEWEL OF THE NILE (itself a rip-off of other films, of course), but fails dramatically. Still, enough of the actors are competent and fun to watch, that it's not a total wash...it just doesn't hang together enough to make it Great, eh?

Watch this one with a Sense Of Humour and maybe a coupla beers, and you'll enjoy it just fine!
