BMW Fans Will Love This Movie
19 June 2004 | by wesmakSee all my reviews

Roy Scheider drives a great yellow (gelb) BMW 1972 2002 Cabriolet, which is very rare in the United States. It has a sunroof, and a plastic back window that rolls down. Very unique. I would love to have a car like that. He wrecks the car on some steps during the movie and it made me sick. Is nothing sacred? The movie is a normal 70's type European spy/cold war type and nothing mind inspiring. It is on the same level as Goldie Hawn and Warren Beatty's "$", made in "West" Germany at the same time period. Fun to remember the culture back then, if you were around like I was. Germany were soccer world champions and were spending a lot of money to promote the country, one of the ways was by backing movies like this.
