An international mishmash!
3 March 2000 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

This was one of the last International Co-production made in the 70's, and it is easy to see why it sat on the shelf and was never released in the U.S! It has way too many subplots, and many of the plots gets interconencted with others, thus adding confusion! Great music score, great photography cannot save this rather tedious film with absolutely NO sympathetic characters whatsoever! Roundtree kept losing his South African accent many times during the film! In fact most of the characters wind up trying to kill each other, and you kind of wish they do! And the ending actually undermines the whole film! It isnt even a good time waster! Definitely the last of these European international co-productions from the 70's!
