We watched this on DVD last night despite my wife wasn't keen on the idea, but I assured her that with a cast including Oliver Reed, Susan George and Raymond Burr it had to be good. How wrong I was Reed played the role of a liberal cop putting on a silly American accent, Susan George looked like she had been force fed pies and buns for several months before filming and Raymond Burr was also dreadful seemingly aping "Boss Hogg". Dreadful dialogue and wooden acting, how much were the three cast members I have mentioned paid to take part in this utter rubbish?
