Italian caper-heist comedy with Frank Wolff
7 November 2004 | by django-1See all my reviews

In this Italian-French caper-heist comedy, recently released thief and safecracker Frank Wolff is hired to steal a weapons system from a government fortress (the first few scenes of the film look like a z-grade space opera as men look at screens and dials during a missile take-off). As is usually the case in these caper films, he puts together a motley crew of comic types, but since this is more of a comedy with crime elements than a crime film with comic touches, there is a lot of buffoonery and the result is much more like a euro version of WHO'S MINDING THE MINT rather than of GRAND SLAM. One of the more interesting touches in this film is the offbeat Swingle Singers-style "vocalese" heard through much of the soundtrack-- It lends a classy touch to the proceedings. Otherwise, I didn't find this film particularly memorable. The comedy is passable, and the film moves quickly, but when the things I find most interesting about a film are the cars in it and the musical score, I know I haven't seen a classic. If a dubbed European espionage-caper comedy is what you're looking for, then I guess MILLION DOLLAR COUNTDOWN is for you, but I wouldn't go to any great lengths to acquire a copy.
