"...simply sucks chunks."
- Mighty Peking Man
Amsterdam Kill (1977)
Director: Robert Clouse
Producer: Andre Morgan
Writer: Robert Clouse, Gregory Tiefer
Cast: Robert Mitchum, Richard Egan, Leslie Nielsen, Bradford Dillman, Keye Luke, George Kee Cheung, Chan Sing
Running Time: 90 min.
Mitchum plays a seedy ex-narc brought out of forced retirement by a former
colleague suspected of being part of an international dope ring. Filmed
on location in Amsterdam and Hong Kong.
One interesting thing about this movie is the presence of a few, then-unknown, Hong Kong cinema heavies including: Yuen Wah (Police Story III, Dragons Forever) and Yuen Biao (Iceman Cometh, Righting Wrongs) as well as a few other familair faces that I can't seem to identify. George Cheung, who plays Mitchum's partner is a highly recognizable "droopy-eyed" Asian actor who has appeared in dozen Hollywood films including "Big Trouble in Little China" and "Lethal Weapon 4". Also interesting to see and hear Keye Luke, who was known for playing "Kato" years before Bruce Lee did, and dubbing the infamous "voice" for "Mr. Han" (played by Shih Kien) in "Enter the Dragon".
With all this said, don't waste your time or money watching "Amsterdam Kill" because it simply sucks chunks.
MIGHTY PEKING MAN'S RATING: 1/10
