I've read most of Alistair Maclean's books and while "The Way to Dusty Death" may not be his best novel (but is still one of my favourites), it is much better than this film would have you believe.
The production team have managed to turn an otherwise tense and fast paced novel based around a Formula 1 driver trying to uncover some baddies into a pedestrian weekday afternoon soap opera. The production values are poor and would make some of those aforementioned soap operas look classy and high quality.
Its script is poor and stilted, and the acting is lacking (I think some of the actors look a bit embarrassed at times, and who can blame them with what they have to work with?)
Granted it's not quite a direct translation from the novel, but they really could have done better.
I think I am being generous giving it a 3/10.
