Mediocre early 70s curiosity for film buffs only
29 April 2019 | by goods116See all my reviews

Not much to get excited about here. Richard Benjamin is good, interesting Cuban missle crisis backdrop. But overall the story is flat and there isn't really a peak to the plot. Generally boring buy the last third just waiting it out. No need to see this movie unless you have some other reason to complete early 70s films.
