Robert Vaughn and Terence Stamp are two of my all-time favorite actors, and they never give disappointing performances. However, even their prodigious talents couldn't save this film. The film descends into hackneyed clichés and ultimately disappoints. It wound up being a cross between "Charly" and "Frankenstein."
I should add that it was great seeing Judy Parfitt (currently one of the nuns on "Call The Midwife" on the PBS series) in her much-younger days, and Nigel Davenport, an under-appreciated actor who should have been given more leading roles during his long career, imho.
In summary, I think it's worthwhile to see this film once, if only for the great cast.
