| A miss for Anthony Quinn!
Peter Collinson, the guy who directed "The Italian Job" (1969), didn't do an extraordinary job here. I do not know who is more to blame, him or the script, probably the script. The movie is boring, hard to digest. There are passages when the music is really annoying. Anthony Quinn tried his best, but unfortunately, this role was not for him. Sometimes he is even embarrassing. John Phillip Law repeated the same scene endlessly, trying to shoot the black president. I only saw the movie because I really like Anthony Quinn, he is one of my favorite actors ever. But not here. I also liked John Philip Law in "Danger: Diabolik" (1968) and "Strogoff" (1970). Not here. One star for Quinn, one for Law.
