Bronson sheds his enigmatic rough-tough persona, dons suit, and coifs hair to join Jill Ireland (impersonating Tammy Wynette) and Rod Steiger (taking off Brando) in this routine tale of witness wanted by FBI and mobsters alike. Characterisation becomes caricature, dialogue is diabolic, and with the whole of Switzerland to frolic in, the ability of both hunter and hunted to arrive in the same place at the same time transcends the realms of coincidence and enters those of ESP. Love and Bullets, my eye; embarrassment and tedium is more like it.
