I need to go burn my eyes
The middle dragged as the plot now turned to how Roger Moore was going to be framed for destroying the mine along with Rogers flurting/affair with Susannah York. I guess this was necessary or else the movie had no where else to go, since the only thing left was the mine and your not going to get a full length movie out of that.
If your a Roger Moore fan, you'll enjoy this movie, for everyone one else, hang on through a little time filler in the middle section and you will enjoy the action packed ending.
The script was typical for a 1970's film, disaster/action genre with lots of early explosions and a nail bitter ending. The acting was ok, no acadamy award winners from this one, but over all good enough to keep watching. The special effects were done well considering this was made in 1974 and the costumes/dress fit the movie. I thought the casting was good, everyone seemed to look/fit the role they had.
I like happy endings, and this movie did not disappoint me there. If you want to relax, enjoy a little bit of action, romance and vintage Roger Moore, this film will deliver. 9/22/13
