A monotonous, glossily vacuous co-production thriller that sends Janssen skidding through the scenic snow in the midst of an incomprehensible blackmail-and-murder plot involving five shadowy Zurich account-holders. Such farragos, along with stabs at softcore comedy and blaxploitation, were the dispiriting lot of veteran sci-fi/mutant movie auteur Arnold after the studio system fell apart. From the German side of the package, incidentally, comes Arthur Brauss, Wenders’ hangdog ‘Goalkeeper’, as a heavy.
