Damn Blast All Balderdash
16 October 2012 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

So the Dick Barton series came to a premature end .It has to be said that this film is an improvement on the previous two,however given that they were both unremittingly awful this is rather faint praise.The plot is as childishly daft as those of the previous two.the cast is also an improvement with no less than Tamara Deni featured.the print on the DVD is rather strange.at times it goes from great clarity to fuzzy graininess.maybe they were using a lot of stock shots from another source presumably they thought that the cinema-goers either would notice or care to much.thankfully having finished the three titles i can now go on to something rather more interesting.
