  • saitosouta's rating of the film The Ransom

    Richard Compton's bizarre rectitude is the genre-bending enigma within B-grade American cinema, auspiciously represented by "Macon County Line", but, I don't know whether he becomes compromising or not, "Assault on Paradise" lacks his generocity strangely, although its action sequences expand in a bombastic way with sweatly-mustached Oliver Reed, which winds up being half-baked populistic blockbuster, nevertheless.
