Not one of Belmondo's best!
8 November 2018 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

No wonder José Giovanni was not satisfied with the adaptation of his own novel. Joanna Shimkus is a woman of rare beauty. Jean-Paul Belmondo is a great actor and stuntman of exception. Robert Enrico, in his turn, is a very good director, he made cool movies like The Last Adventure (1967) Les aventuriers (original title) or The Old Gun (1975) Le vieux fusil (original title). Not this "Ho!", which is a failure.
