This film is dire ! Not quite as bad as the Monica Vitti version, the only saving grace with that was the totally underused Terence Stamp.
This version has very little to recommend it although the story is easier to follow than the earlier version. Modesty Blaise is a good character and there were several good books that they might have made good films from.This however is not one.
