STARTS OFF GREAT BUT SOON DIES OUT
15 April 2020 | by larryandersonSee all my reviews

The movie starts out at a fast pace with an attempted assassination at the start but after 20 minutes it turns into a chase after the attempted assassin. The assassin gets crushed in a train tunnel while fighting with Roger Hanin. Roger is left holding part of the sleeve and looking bewildered as to what just happened. They never get to Africa and just chase around the French countryside. The reason they call Hanin the Gorilla is that he is constantly smashing his fist through walls and tables and when he fights several men. he always wins. He even pulls apart a large chain locking a gate. I expected an early Euro Spy movie but was disappointed.
