Audience Reviews for Funeral for an Assassin


From The Men of Action Advantage Collection. This is one of those movies that you won't see on TV in most countries anymore, it could have been an average late night time filler. Reasonably well made c-grade stuff (but dated looking) with some good actors, but the one thing that it contains that will have you looking twice is the Star Vic Morrow "blacking up" more than once in the movie to pass as a local and apparently getting away with it (with the actors on screen at least). The film itself is a bit overlong and not really anything special, and something you will find on lots of those budget 50 or 100 "movie packs" on DVD. I wouldn't advise you looking for it as its far more 'talky' than action, like a strange episode of a 70's cop show thats more than double the length it should be but with no extra budget or script. Im waffling on now just to fill the space required for reviews here, but let me finish by saying this is a strange curiosity from a bygone age. 2 1/2 Stars 8-12-13
