The old routine: tough cop, bent colleagues, dope shipment, hired killer...varied by moving the location to Paris and Marseille, by making Quinn a top US Embassy official, and by making his best buddy the contract killer out to get the untouchable 'respected member of society'. Despite the routine situation and the routine casting of Quinn, Caine and Mason (Caine actually perking the film into some semblance of interest), Parrish does manage to infiltrate a little intelligence into the proceedings from time to time. But he can't shift the nagging sense of over-familiarity.

Ratings explained: 

All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.

Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.

A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent

9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.

8 and below will be from 2nd  or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.

Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with  a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3

Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.

Every title on the site is region free so no matter where in the world you live you should have no problems playing any of our discs. Your only requirement is a DVD player capable of receiving a PAL and NTSC signal, about 99% of European players have this facility, the rest of the world check the net for compatible players.
