Very watchable crime-drama, but looks very old.
26 March 2000 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

Everyone seems to list this film as being 1979, but I saw it on Japan TV in 1976. Great plot has Hossein as a professional thief who is childhood friends (now rival) cop Aznavour who is hot on his trail. Hossein calls himself "dillinger" for he looks up to the old US bank robber. FRENCH CONNECTION's Bouzzuffi plays one of Hossein's henchman. Excellent car chase and stunt centers in a French version of a Italian action cinema route. The video print is a murkey TV print and has commerical edits, and is 20 minutes short and the character plot runs rough. Shown uncut on Showtime and Escapade cable channel back in 1981. I wish I had a VCR then. ): Recommended, but not the video print.
