enjoyable Spanish spoof of international "caper" films
This Spanish film (I'm reviewing the English-dubbed version, MISSION PHANTOM) is a enjoyable spoof of the many international "caper" films of the 1960s, where a ragtag band of colorful characters from different countries and backgrounds are brought together to pull of some "impossible" heist in a well-guarded place with amazing security. It is played for laughs, yet at the same time IS an intriguing heist pulled off in a creative way. The cast includes Fernando Sancho and Eduardo Fajardo--two men best known in the US for VERY different kinds of roles in European westerns (Sancho usually as a colorful Mexican bandido, Fajardo usually as a sadistic town boss or gang leader). No classic, but an enjoyable way to kill 90 minutes on a rainy day.
