13 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is very much a below par effort. Sex scenes are OK and the extensive shots of, probably late 60's London fascinating but the convoluted storyline that goes nowhere is inexcusable. There is one particularly drawn out sequence which ends with the scientist saying, 'This isn't going to work'! Well thanks a bunch, we weren't that interested anyway.

Another saving grace though is an extraordinary scene at the end when a rejuvenated 'hero' seems to be having sex in order to kill and he even has intercourse with one half dead girl over the top of two others laid out on the bed, one of them his girlfriend.
