Action, Intrigue, Shoot'em up!
10 November 2004 | by (Vegas) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the marvelous Toho LaBrea Theatre in Hollywood in 1970 and was both thrilled and impressed with the tale of two killers. One, a top policeman charged with protecting a visiting Politician who happens to be a ruthless dictator. The other, an assassin set to kill the same.

I remember the interesting juxtaposition of the two killers, sometime, indistinguishable from one another - who is right? Protecting the villain or assassinating him?

I can't imagine how the film would fare today, but 34 years ago, it was exciting, the blazing gunplay was way over the top and I've never forgotten it and it was certainly a template for many of the action films to follow.

I wonder if this is available on DVD?
