Worth is for the food scene
3 February 2018 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

The most bizarre and hilarious sequence in this film has nothing to do with the plot whatsoever and involves Interpol agent Anthony Steffan struggling to open a packet of hotdogs, then cracking an egg open by smashing it against a kitchen cupboard before dumping it in a frying pan. No idea at all why that was put in there, but it sure was funny.

Anthony has been sent to Portugal to pick up the dead body of another agent murdered on the job. He's miffed already because he was given his orders right in the middle of a bust, and he wasn't finished telling all those drug-filled hippies that they stink. He's also not happy that he's not allowed to investigate what's happened and leave it all to the Interpol agents already stationed in Lisbon, so what does Anthony do? He fakes boarding the plane and goes on a violent journey trying to track down the killer (or killers) (or killer) (or killers) (maybe).

This is a lot more action orientated than usual and is more of a hybrid of Euro-Crime and Giallo as various factions try and take down Steffan, but that said there's also a black gloved killer going about so let's not split hairs. I did notice that Anthony sure got a lot of people killed, including an agent mate of his, and subsequently the agent's wife who's silhouette is mistaken for Anthony's. Whoops!

Throw in a car chase and a kick-ass machine gun, a car chase or two, and I was happy. The body count for this one is through the roof, basically leaving one character to survive the film, and they got shot too! Entertaining stuff, this one. No idea what the title means mind you.
