Product Description

Michael Caine and Roger Moore play two con-men who decide to perpetrate a heist disguised as the dodgy scientists Dr Hicklar and Sir John Bavistock, whilst the real scientists (also played by Caine and Moore) are, unknown to their impersonators, trying to sell a secret formula to the highest bidder. John Cleese, Patsy Kensit and Jenny Seagrove make brief cameo appearances in this comedy.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Mono ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Government scientist Michael Caine and Roger Moore plan to auction off a cold fusion formula to the highest bidder. Meanwhile, a pair of con artists-also played by Caine and Moore-impersonate the scientist and his friends in hopes of getting a piece of the action. This leads to an unending supply of comic complications, deadly encounters, wacky recurring characters and Sennett-style chases. Is louder and faster really funnier? You be the judge. Roger Moore's real-life daughter Deborah Barrymore shows up as a CIA agent. ...Bullseye!

First, about the DVD - it's a low budget copy, mono soundtrack with no extras to note. This spoils somewhat the overall enjoyment of the film.
Second, about the film - it's a quick paced farce set on a train and in two fixed locations. Now if this sounds uninspiring it shouldn't be. It is really quite a funny film. Though slightly silly at times it keeps you following who is who as the plot untwines.
Finally, a note about the actors - Michael Caine and Roger Moore are great in their roles, making a good duo and supporting actors plays their part well too.
Though not a well known film and probably never destined to be a classic, it is a welcome breath of fresh air from serious films because it is first and foremost entertaining. I like it, but there again I like Marmite too - it's probably one of those kind of films. I suggest you buy it if you like the actors but avoid it if not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bullseye! 7 July 2012
By Chris
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wonderful bit of classic British comedy.

Quality wise, this dvd isn't one of the best. I wouldn't say it is so bad that it looks like a VHS copy, but quality isn't as good as some other DVDs from the same period. Sadly I don;t believe Bullseye! has the kind of following that would make it worth any type of remastering. That said it's a classic film, the quality does not in any way detract from the enjoyment of the movie and I am more than happy with the purchase at the current price.

I just wanted to add, in regards to some copies not being English, the copy I received from Amazon was English.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you serious? 12 Nov 2008
Format:DVD
This review does only refer to the DVD not the film!

DON'T BUY THIS DVD! Every 15 year old VHS from any filthy video store is exceeding the quality of this DVD. No Original aspect ratio, no picture transfer to the 21st century- no nothig. They just used the old VHS and copied it on DVD- home-made would be better! The title is appearing is some obscure language- maybe they couldn't find another VHS- that way one must be happy to at least have an english audio track. Every penny invested in this DVD is to much!

This publication is nothing but an impudence!

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated & fun 31 Aug 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Alas, I think Bullseye! is too underrated for it ever to gain the sort of quality release it deserves. This is the best we're going to get so I'm happy enough to live with it.

As for the film itself.... yes, it's cheesy and the plot jumps about all over the place, but I think it has always been taken far too seriously by its critics. It's old fashioned good fun and has some hilarious moments within; the interplay between the two lead characters being of particular note. But, as a previous reviewer has stated, there is something more to it than just the comedy - it evokes the era particularly well and it features some particularly inspired use of location shoots.

In summary, it is never going to become a classic, but it's better than its reputation might suggest - you'll either love it or hate it.
