Not to be confused with Guy Richie's feature-length Kaballah infomercial, we have hard-drinking Oliver Reed as a prison warden caught in a labyrinthine conspiracy covering up an assassination. The story threatens to unravel just from its sheer absurdity, but somehow the chops of Sergio Sollima keep it grounded in reality. His particular brand of the buddy movie, rooted in moral ambiguity, deception, and split-second twists of fate, fits this nihilistic story to a T. To summarize would spoil it. Sit back and let Morricone's music draw you in, just don't try to overintellectualize the mechanations of the plot.
An awesome ride of a movie with a very very intelligent motive for the bad guys' kidnapping plot. The buddy-film aspect works great, too. (it seems like the Italians helped create the buddy movie genre in the first place :P) Oliver Reed and Fabio Testi are awesome and Sollima's direction is top notch! Highly suggested.
