A predictable but quirky Australian action picture which stars Winfield as an American ex-convict in Sydney who befriends a French-speaking youngster, Cox. Danger erupts when Cox witnesses a murder and is targeted for death by Taylor, Winfield's hit-man boss. Accompanied by a dwarf, the

pair takes to a mountaintop where a hairraising skirmish ensues. Winfield's performance is solid, but the picture never becomes really involving. Taylor, a native Australian who made it big in the US, is unconvincing in his role. Winfield, who got an Oscar nomination for SOUNDER (1972), is

excellent in a part that might otherwise have smacked of gimmickry.
