It's no Intruder, but it stars Peter O'Brian, so bow down and pay homage
I'll keep this short, because quite honestly i'm not sure what to write. I saw this film on an epic, epic day. After becoming addicted to viewing Peter O'Brian movies, yet only having The Intruder and The Stabilizer, i was yearning for something new. Thanks to an over-charging American, my friends and I were granted the pleasure of watching Double Crosser and Jungle Heat - (not yet listed) in the same day. Favourite line: "The silence is deafening".
Things I learnt: 1) If a movie over spends its budget, its likely to end the film with a massive explosion that leaves you with the conclusion, "ah well, i suppose they all died." 2) Little blind girls without walking sticks walk like Zombies and are VERY VERY annoying. 3) In Indonesia in 1990, the toy every little child had always wanted was a stuffed panda. 4)Peter O'Brians fighting techniques significantly improved between the years of 1984 and 1990. 5) If you walk in on your brother in law and your woman hanging a picture together, its clear they must be engaged in an affair. 6) If you're kidnapped once in a Peter O'Brian film, then its highly probable that the bad guys will kidnap you again. 7) Villains DO own crocodiles! but good guys rarely get eaten. 8) a friend called Ruben will ALWAYS be on hand waiting with a one man plane fuelled and ready to take, no questions asked, he'll just sit on the runway and say, "OK". 9) Beware of Theme Parks, you are likely to be attacked as you board a ferris wheel cart.
I whole heartedly recommend Double Crosser as an integral part of the Peter O'Brian experience.
