"Caper" is a loss
20 September 2007 | by (long island) – See all my reviews

Paul Leder's made some real duds -- ever see APE? -- and this is yet another of them. Victor Buono plans a heist in China and hires a "crew" to pull it off, then he rips them off.

This looks like it was mostly made up on the spot to accommodate the locations, which is the only good thing about the film, although Buono seems embarrassingly amused at being in this mess.

The funniest (and dumbest) thing about the film is the way Leder tries to hide the fact that much of the cast is dubbed. He films the Chinese actors from the back, so we can't see their mouths moving out of synch, much the way Doris Wishman did with her el-cheapo sex films of the mid 60's. Why? I ask. I have no idea.

You can get this time-waster at your local Dollar Store. That's probably more than Leder's budget.
