Format: DVD
One of Golden Harvest's periodic attempts to break out of Hong Kong films and into the international market, The Amsterdam Kill boasts a cast of fading or faded stars - Robert Mitchum, Leslie Nielson, Bradford Dillman and Richard Egan, the latter sporting one of the worst wigs of the 70s and golf trousers a pimp wouldn't be caught dead in - glamorous locations like Hong Kong, Amsterdam and Wandsworth, subtle dialogue like "Is this the American Mr Quinlan, the former narcotics agent?" and a finale that proves that people who live in glasshouses shouldn't leave bulldozers around and that the DEA don't need to try to arrest suspects in a foreign country if they've got machine guns with them. Mitchum's the disgraced DEA man who gets hired to leak information from Keye Luke's drug lord that will put away his rivals and secure him immunity from prosecution when he retires, only for things to naturally go wrong thanks to a mole somewhere in the organisation, but that's little more than an excuse for the odd shootout and action scene (as well as one rather neat scene where a heart monitor is used as a lie detector), all delivered with unexceptional efficiency by Enter the Dragon director Robert Clouse showing his usual anonymous competence. As long as you're aware going in that originality and finesse aren't on the menu, in a strange way it's reassuringly average, an undemanding by-the-numbers effort that belongs on the wrong half of a double-bill but is as easy to watch as it is to forget. (Yuen Baio, prominently billed on the German DVD cover, can fleetingly be glimpsed in a slo-mo scene in a horse trough.) Two-and-a-half star stuff rather than three.

At present none of the DVD releases of this title are good - all are cheap Public Domain transfers, with the UK release poor. The German release at least offers a 2.35:1 widescreen transfer that's acceptable if you're not expecting too much with English soundtrack and German trailer as well as a brief deleted scene.

This dvd has the worst picture quality of any professionally marketed video I have come across.It is almost unwatchable - it is only because I am a big Robert Mitchum fan that I stuck with it till the end.To think that in 1975/76 he appeared in such classy productions as ' Farewell My Lovely' and 'The Last Tycoon'.Unless you like a picture that looks like pea soup avoid this DVD.

Although not listed among favourites of cinema critics, this work, filmed primarily in Hong Kong and Amsterdam, proves to be a very competently made affair, with good performances by such old hands as featured player Robert Mitchum and supporting actors Bradford Dillman, Richard Egan, and Keye Luke.

Mitchum, as "Quinlan", a sullied former agent of the Drug Enforcement Agency, is hired by one of his erstwhile targeted criminals: Chung Wei (Luke), a leader of Amsterdam's major narcotics league, to discover who is murdering, on two continents, large scale heroin dealers.

During the course of his investigation, Quinlan is re-hired by the DEA in return for supplying the agency, now under the aegis of his former boss "Odums" (Dillman), information concerning major supply locations serving Hong Kong's dope derby. As Quinlan attempts to assist both Chung Wei and the DEA, he discovers that sabotage of his operation stems from an unknown confederate, and he is made to realize that he remains less than popular with the drug enforcement administrators.

The film is paced correctly by director Robert Clouse, who controls the many action scenes very well indeed, with his script spending exactly the proper amount of time filling gaps which might betray logic.

It is a fair statement that dialogue is of above-average quality for an action production, with one remarkable monologue delivered by Mitchum in his character's Hong Kong hotel room as he propels the plot past a conundrum, a highly accomplished piece of acting.

As there are no females in the cast other than extras, the complicated pickle in which Quinlan finds himself is not diluted by the normally obligatory romantic subplot, freeing an audience to concentrate upon a well-told scenario, incidentally marked by Dillman's strong performance and by the creative camerawork of Alan Humes.

Hard to find. Glad I got it here. Bob is at hi best being the bum who turns around and becomes something else. Action is great a although I do not know how they got permission to destroy all that stuff for a chase.
