Reviews

Three hours of frantic chasing and violent slapstick is too much even when done on this scale and with this cast, but one must observe that scene-for-scene it is extremely well done and most of the players are in usually good form, although they all outstay their welcome and are upstaged by the stunt men. (Halliwell’s)
