Danger Route  [DVD]Richard Johnson (actor)
Silvia Syms (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 90 min
Adapted from Andrew York's novel The Eliminator, this is a sloppily constructed spy thriller that aims for the gloss, levity and excitement of a Bond movie and misses by a mile. Always an inconsistent director, Seth Holt goes off on so many tangents that the central plot, about agent Richard Johnson's mission to kill a Soviet scientist before he can pass secrets to the Americans, is completely obscured.
Johnson looks the part during the action sequences, but neither he nor a splendid but woefully wasted supporting cast can do much with Meade Roberts's dismal dialogue.
