I'll Do The Vacuuming
9 June 2017 | by bnwfilmbuffSee all my reviews

FBI agent Jerry Cotton is to assume the identity of infamous electronics burglar alarm disabling specialist Rick Trevor, who has just been released from Dartmore prison and is flying to LA to join the notorious Stone crime syndicate. Prior to disembarking from the plane, Trevor is nabbed and the switch made. Cotton's assignment is to unmask Stone whose organization has been wreaking havoc throughout the US and is suspected of getting ready for another major caper. The acting is mediocre with Nader's British accent as Cotton impersonating Trevor particularly atrocious. Furthermore, Cotton as Trevor is continuously insisting on meeting the reclusive Stone irritating the gang and making it too obvious that Cotton is an imposter. Not to mention that he's supposed to be an electronics nerd but he can single-handedly whip this tough-guy organization with guys the size of gorillas. There's a few good glimpses of mid-60s LA but the gang hide-out, The Green Silk bar, looked like a place you expect to find in an alley on the south side of Chicago rather than LA and with a doorman outfitted to be working a posh 5th avenue hotel. Inside the bar doesn't get any better with three gals dancing uninspiringly in a Spartan setting. Silvie Solar provides the female character to fight over. The last half hour or so the movie goes into hyper-drive making up for lost time during the meandering presentation of the heist. (They get wrapped up referencing a device called "the absorber" that is nothing more than a big vacuum!) Despite all of these shortcomings it is still pretty likable with a story that is easy to follow.
