Makes "Plan 9 From Outer Space" look like a masterpiece.
13 May 2003 | by doireSee all my reviews

Potentially the worst film I have ever had the misfortune to experience. "Plan 9 from Outer Space" is "Citizen Kane" compared to this garbage. Undoubtedly the worst adaptation of an Alistair MacLean novel ever commited to celluloid, a disgrace to an excellent, suspenseful novel. What the hell was Geoffrey Reeve thinking off?. A thriller set in the world of Formula 1 racing cars, an integral part of the books plot, is reduced here to a few amateurish shots of racing cars going around a few bends - and I do mean amateurish footage. No excitement, no suspense, no coherency, no acting, no nothing. Awful and embarrasingly ridiculous. Was this made by Reeve as a tax dodge or something?. Or a home movie". It feels like it. I suppose they were glad to get some lolly to make this dismal effort - I presume that same lolly was spent on some lovely presents for the director and his cronies. As it stands, it looks as though about £50 was spent on this production, if that!.
