User Reviews

 
One of the poorest of the series
15 August 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film does not use the iconic music,instead it utilises a truly cacophonistic score.The story is very indifferent.Edward da Souza plays a cashiered RAF pilot who is now a gambler.He is coerced by Aslan into collecting diamonds from France and bringing them back to England.There are a number of twists,with each one being trumped.One of the big problems is Aslan who seems very hesitant with his lines and therefore exudes no menace.They really needed Herbert Lom or Allen Wheatley
