Review by Lonn Stewart (posted on 6-Feb-2008)

Typical 60's action movie w/the Dean Martin touch...w/out the martini glass! Good action/fight scenes w/the usual beautiful damsels in distress! Too little of Tina Louise, too much of trying to understand Elke Sommer... and as for Sharon Tate... what a cool chick. She handles her role of the dumb guide with glee and before your very eyes transforms into a fighting machine! I loved it! Throwing Sommer into the pool and disposing of Nancy Kwan so well -- well, I just love a women who can kick some **ss! As she gets off the helicopter and says "let's go!" roaring into the unknown to fight justice (w/Dean giving her that "I never knew" look) she ended the film my heroine! And I have often thought w/ a little stupidity WHY didn't use her Kwan-finishing karate at 100 Cielo Drive. Yes I know, it was only a movie!
