User Reviews

Extremely poorly dubbed action film.
2 April 2000 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

Tony Anthony wrote and stars in this slow moving action film that has him as a small time hood who offers a gangster (Adolpho Celi) a deal of a lifetime. A half a million dollars hidden in a Irene Papas's dead husbands body. But Celi double cross Anthony leaving him to go on a revenge. Papas only appears for 3 minutes, Richard Conte has a nothing role in the first reel only appearing for about a minute. Lionel Stander only appears once as Anthony's friend. Stander is dubbed by some young british guy trying to talk like him. Conte and Celi is dubbed by a 20 year old voice with no action experience. Anthony is good, but the film just isn't there. Not recommended.
