Not much point in watching this
6 August 2015 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

I was interested in watching this film in part because it was directed by John Glen, who had directed several James Bond movies in the 1980s that I had liked. However, after watching this movie, all I could think was that Glen's status as a director had fallen greatly in the years between James Bond and this film. To be fair, Glen was working with a script that really needed a few more rewrites before filming - the opening is kind of vague, the chief villain character is kind of vague, and various plot details here and there are vague as well. Despite this inadequate script, the movie could still have been fun with some energetic direction. But the movie is slow-moving and the few action sequences really lack zip and punch. Though this may have been in part due to the low budget, which also results in the movie having a somewhat cheap look and feel that resembles low budget Canadian television shows from the 1990s. To date, this is the final movie that Glen has directed. Maybe that's for the best.
