Synopsis:
Rufus Excalibur Ffolkes (Roger Moore) is an eccentric underwater saboteur who can't stand women but who loves cats. Lou Kramer (Anthony Perkins) is a psychotic madman who's determined to blow up the largest oil rig in the North Sea unless the British Government pays him a king's ransom. Heart stopping battle of nerves where every second ticks towards a shattering finale. When Kramer announces his deadly plans, it's up to Ffolkes and his crack aquatic team to outwit him at his own deadly game - in less than 24 hours. James Mason co-stars in this offbeat thriller that mixes high seas adventure with a touch of English humour and class.

Note: Different title - North Sea Hijack review by AW

Spoiler Alert
21/08/2018

I didn't look closely enough at the description, just thought it was another vehicle with Roger Moore or James Mason, only to realise I've already seen this 1980 film several times as it was originally entitled "ffolkes" .

Pretty good drama however about the highjacking of a North Sea oil rig.

Anthony Perkins, Michael Parks, George Baker, David Hedison, Faith Brook, and Jeremy Clyde also star.
