U Certificate


Our Score
Another lamb to the critical slaughter from the Butcher's B-movie factory, and it is undoubtedly one of the company's worst. Paul Maxwell has the misfortune to star in this risible tale about an oil mogul who agrees to have himself kidnapped so he can root out a mole operating within the British Secret Service. Ernest Morris directs with such little enthusiasm for the material that he can hardly expect his audience to bother sitting all the way through a story that is shrouded in about as much mystery as an oil well under a belly-dancer's veil.


An American oil baron unwittingly gets embroiled in international espionage en route from Baghdad to London. Thriller, starring Paul Maxwell and Clare Owen.
