Life at the Top (1965) Tony Mastroianni Life at the Top emerges as stronger stuff than the average sequel. EDIT

The Lady in the Car With Glasses and a Gun (1970) Tony Mastroianni Mystery-starved audiences may find some of this diverting, about the first half of it anyway. But the movie achieves a sort of plateau and never moves from it. EDIT

() Tony Mastroianni Gassman is a master of nuances. So much is expressed with a shrug, a gesture, a curled lip. EDIT

The Slender Thread (1965) Tony Mastroianni The Slender Thread is a carefully constructed study in suspense, its climaxes well sustained. EDIT

A Study in Terror (1966) Tony Mastroianni Add John Neville, a skillful English actor to the long list of performers who have played Sherlock Holmes, and place him high on the list. EDIT

Stop the World, I Want to Get Off (1966) Tony Mastroianni Director Philip Saville has a free-wheeling camera technique which helps give the movie motion and variety: Tanner is a good Littlechap and makes the most of his big moments. EDIT

The Sting (1973) Tony Mastroianni This is sheer entertainment, artfully made but without self conscious artiness. It is a picture put together by craftsmen who bring to it all their skills with only one purpose-entertainment. EDIT

The Steagle (1971) Tony Mastroianni The Steagle is another movie about alienation and not a very good one. With so much alienation on screen is it any wonder that audiences are beginning to feel alienated? EDIT

() Tony Mastroianni The biggest flaw in the movie Is the script which concentrates on individual scenes but fails to tie them into a comprehensible or logical plot. EDIT

Showdown (1973) Tony Mastroianni Showdown" is a tired western. Everyone in it is tired. The only suspense in the film is watching a tired Dean Martin and a tired Rock Hudson getting on their horses. Sometimes you think they won't make it. EDIT

Let's Talk About Women (1964) Tony Mastroianni The actor is a tireless performer. It's the movie that sometimes gets tiresome. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
Little Murders (1971) Tony Mastroianni The movie tells no story. It is almost an unconnected series of sketches, some funny, others dull, all uneven. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
Looking for Love (1964) Tony Mastroianni The plot is wildly improbable yet completely predictable. But for all of that Looking for Love is pleasant, a movie that is strictly for fun. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
The Silencers (1966) Tony Mastroianni The total effect is overblown sensationalism on the tawdry side. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
Love Story (1970) Tony Mastroianni Love Story is a three-handkerchief movie if you are hard boiled. Otherwise it rates six hankies. EDIT

Lt. Robin Crusoe, U.S.N. (1966) Tony Mastroianni Regardless who is on screen, the chimp steals the movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
Magnum Force (1973) Tony Mastroianni The dialog is as uninspired as the plot but the stunt and chase sequences are up to par for this sort of thing. The action is fast, brutal and bloody. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
The Late Liz (1972) Tony Mastroianni The Late Liz hits you over the head with its message and while you cannot fault it for a lack of sincerity -- it is about as sincere as you can get -- a little professionalism would have gone a long way to help it. EDIT

Lawman (1971) Tony Mastroianni Trying to be thoughtful, it is merely dull. Since it doesn't replace gore with thoughts it ends up being both dull and gory. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
The Marriage of a Young Stockbroker (1971) Tony Mastroianni Maybe it's true that no one starts out to make a bad movie, but surely no one must have thought this one to be very good to begin with. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
The Last Run (1971) Tony Mastroianni The scenery is breathtaking and the mountain road chases better than average. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
The Last of the Secret Agents? (1966) Tony Mastroianni There's a good deal of frantic activity as Marty Allen and Steve Rossi attempt] slapstick that never comes off, satire that's merely dull and a story about secret agents and international art thefts that never generates any interest. EDIT

Last of the Red Hot Lovers (1972) Tony Mastroianni [It] was a very funny thing on stage, but with serious overtones. On film Simon's lines have just as much wit, just as much fun and just as much bite. But... The hero's anguish seems to overshadow his fumbling attempts at being a Casanova. EDIT

The Mind of Mr. Soames (1970) Tony Mastroianni Soames is a movie that remains inventive throughout. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Monkeys, Go Home! (1967) Tony Mastroianni An amusing, light-hearted and pleasant motion picture for the entire family. EDIT

The Sleeping Car Murders (1965) Tony Mastroianni Five or 10 years from now connoisseurs of murder mystery motion pictures will be calling The Sleeping Car Murder a classic. EDIT

Skin Game (1971) Tony Mastroianni Garner has the characterization of lovable rascal down to a science. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Dynamite Chicken (1971) Tony Mastroianni Most of it is pretty repetitious. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Shootout (1971) Tony Mastroianni Peck is adequate in a role that doesn't demand much more than adequacy. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Night Flight From Moscow (1973) Tony Mastroianni Serpent is a low-key espionage procedural drama that has more good moments than bad. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
The Secret of My Success (1965) Tony Mastroianni Secret of My Success is an absurd, formless, shapeless affair that was handsomely photographed and well acted. Trouble with it is a script that wanders off in several directions resulting in a very uneven motion picture. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Such Good Friends (1971) Tony Mastroianni The picture takes on such institutions as marriage, medicine and friendship and treats them all pretty roughly. What succeeds is a barrage of bright, witty, trenchant lines written by Elaine May operating under the pseudonym of Esther Dale. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams (1973) Tony Mastroianni The whole thing is rather jerky. The sensitivity is in the performances but seldom anywhere else. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
The Swinger (1966) Tony Mastroianni There are parts of The Swinger that are so bad they are funny; other parts so bad they are awful. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Scalawag (1973) Tony Mastroianni It is a general lackluster look, a slowness of development, an attempt at a more complicated plot that causes the story to flounder. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
The Rounders (1965) Tony Mastroianni The movie has wonderful outdoor color photography, better than some done for bigger films. Ford and Fonda seem to be having fun in their non-heroic cowboy parts. It's not great, but it's different. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Rider on the Rain (1970) Tony Mastroianni Bronson is perfect. An underrated actor limited to television roles and a few secondary roles in major movies, Bronson here proves that he can carry a film more effectively than many star performers. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Red Sky at Morning (1971) Tony Mastroianni The leisure in the telling of Red Sky at Morning turns out to be merely sluggishness because the warmth and charm indicated in the material seldom come across on screen. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Raid on Rommel (1971) Tony Mastroianni It's a terribly complicated and not very interesting plot. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
The Quiller Memorandum (1966) Tony Mastroianni Segal's characterization is something of a puzzle. It is not consistent, is full of mannerisms and is seldom believable. EDIT

Mrs. Pollifax: Spy (1971) Tony Mastroianni Mrs. Pollifax -- Spyis a spy spoof that never works, a comedy-adventure with little comedy and less adventure. EDIT
Posted Apr 2, 2019
My Sister My Love (1966) Tony Mastroianni The canvas is too broad, the characters too involved, the scene too cluttered to allow the tragedy to develop in a logical and headlong pace. EDIT

The Optimists of Nine Elms (1973) Tony Mastroianni The crotchety old gent is played by Peter Sellers in a performance that has more discipline and skill than this actor has shown in years. EDIT

No Time for Breakfast (1975) Tony Mastroianni No Time For Breakfast is the kind of movie that sneaks up on you. At first glance you get the impression that you have been faced with a French soap opera. But soap operas lack this film's insights and its skilled, understated acting. EDIT

The Naked Ape (1973) Tony Mastroianni Take a non-book, base a movie on it and the result is a non-movie. EDIT

Pieces of Dreams (1970) Tony Mastroianni The result is a rather sudsy romance which is more sentimental than spiritual. EDIT

OK Connery (Operation Kid Brother) (Secret Agent 00) (Operation Double 007) (1967) Tony Mastroianni Dreary and dismal. EDIT
