Did You Know?


To help out director Carlo Ausino took one of the prop cars home to paint in order to look like a police car for the film. Someone gave an anonymous tip to the police that a suspicious person was painting a car to look like a police car. Because terrorism was high in Italy at the time the police showed up at the director's home wondering what he was doing. See more »

I wasn't aware that Eurocrime got this boring.
31 May 2009 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

Well, almost every review ever written for Double Game says that it's not a good film; and who am I to buck that trend? I actually went into this film with some high hopes; 1977 was a good year for Eurocrime (Fearless, Weapons of Death, Destruction Force etc) and George Hilton usually puts in a good turn - but unfortunately, the film is just far too boring and less than half the way through, my mind began to wander. The plot is very thin and simple, and we just; as usual, focus on crime in the city, and this time a vigilante that takes the law into his own hands. However, in spite of it being simple; director Carlo Ausino has somehow managed to completely mess the plot up. It's confusing and turgid throughout, and this makes it very difficult to care about anything that's going on. This is not George Hilton's best performance either; and I can't say I blame him for not giving his all. There's very little action, and when the car chases and things do finally make an appearance; they're not well shot and unlikely to wake the sleeping audience. Overall, I'm really quite appalled at how bad this film is, and needless to say I'm not looking forward to Another Double Game.
