The Only Thing I Liked About This Film Was The Poster!
14 September 2000 | by newnoirSee all my reviews

Yes, the poster for this film. The neat image of sparkling, cut diamonds slipping through Burt Reynolds fingers. That's pretty much all I liked about this flick. Burt stars as a jewel thief who pulls off a heist in jolly old England. There's a very dated scene where one of the guys in Burt's crew shows of his collection of Nazi memorabilia. Nice. Not. But the Nazi dude then does his part in the caper working alongside the token black dude in the crew, so I guess the character's more liberal minded than the average Nazi. Don Siegel is usually a kickass director (i.e. Dirty Harry etc.) but he isn't here. Skip this film, you'll thank me in the morning, dear...over 'n' out...
