This "Spaghetti Cassavetes" film, complete with Italian actors dubbed into English, is fairly disappointing, despite good performances from Cassavetes, Peter Falk, and Gena Rowlands. There's about five minutes of Gena, and her adoring fans may want to see that anyway, but I suggest you suffice with the rather tasty trailer (just click on the screenshot, thanks Mubi! :-)
Made watchable only by John Cassavetes's ice-cold performance, a classic score by Ennio Morricone, and a few scenes of nihilistic violence. It does get better towards the end, but most of it is just too slow.
A decent heist movie which takes on a completely different tone for its last act. The setup is nice and the acting is great. Sure, the pacing was a little slow, the plot was a little goofy at points and there was nowhere nearly enough of Gena Rowlands' character but the score was sweet, Machine Gun McCain was entertaining and Britt Ekland was fun to look at.
