It is the 21st Century, and society’s lust for violence is satisfied by “The Big Hunt,” an international game of legalized murder. But when the sport’s two top assassins (Marcello Mastroianni and Ursula Andress) are pitted against each other, they find that love is the most dangerous game of all. As the world watches, the hunt is on. Who will become THE 10TH VICTIM?
To judge this film by “today’s standards” misses the point–what are we comparing it to? Armageddon? Scream 3? This was the European 60s vision of the ‘future’– and why didn’t it turn out that way? An odd, cheeky little plot mixing romance, light sci-fi and gunplay is underscored by dazzling visuals in a similar style to The Prisoner series, or Alphaville (if it were in color). Piero Piccioni’s score is pure ‘Jazz 2001’, and is available as an import reissue. Mastroianni is charming and Ursula Andress is at her sexiest, in an array of groovy ensembles. It all depends on what you’re after, but personally I wish the WORLD LOOKED like this movie and that men’s and women’s fashion reflected this film’s ‘in the future, people will dress like this’ style.
