4.0 out of 5 stars A Good British Thriller, 11 July 2002
This review is from: Alistair Maclean's Puppet On A Chain [DVD] (DVD)
Back in 1970, when this was made, James Bond thrillers were still all the rage and their alter-ego, Aleistar Maclain thrillers were also coming to the fore, thanks largely to the recent success of "Where Eagles Dare" in 1969 and "The Guns of Navarone" in 1961.
The Brits were always capable of making good thrillers, be it intellectual stuff such as a John le Carre feature or more Americanised stuff such as this but with a decidedly British twist.
Puppet On A Chain follows the exploits of Paul Sherman, an Interpol Agent flown into Amsterdam to smash a heroin racket who's calling card are to dispose of their enemies by hanging them from meathooks on chains. Mostly famous for the cracking power-boat chase around the canals of Amsterdam. A big hit at the time and for my money still worthwhile entertainment today, harking back to a time when the Brits were not afraid to stick their necks out and make something just little bit more adventurous than you'd expect them to!
