3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing spectacular, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jaguar Lives! [DVD] (DVD)
Despite an all star cast and the presence of 1979 Karate champion Joe Lewis, Jaguar Lives never rises above mediocre for most of it's running time. The film has been compared to a Bond film by some and this is a good comparison, apart from it's globe trotting story-line which spans the far east,the u.s and the middle east, the all star cast stars a cache of ex-Bond villian's in the shape of Christopher Lee (Man with the golden gun) Donald Pleasence (You only live twice) and Joseph Wiseman (Dr No) along with Barbara Bach (The spy who loved me) who appears briefly in a small role.

Lewis has all the acting chops of a wooden plank but his fights,though never as entertaining as the likes of Bruce lee,Jackie Chan etc are ok when called upon but don't have that screen shine like those i've mentioned.

Despite top billing, neither Christopher Lee or Donald Pleasence appear very much in the movie. Pleseance's brief turn as a middle eastern dictator is one of the movie's highlights and hams it up outrageously in what was no doubt a quick "take the cheque" role.

Arrows DVD sports an ok 4.3 pan and scan transfer. Why this isn't in widescreen is anyones guess and poor on Arrow's part in my opinion.

Extra features are thin on the ground but there is a decent 25 min interview with the now 66yr old lewis, who despite his over inflated opinion on his acting skills has some interesting ancedotes aout the making of the film,his co-stars and his relationship with Bruce lee.
