Uranium Conspiracy, The / Agenten kennen keine Tränen (1978)

2.0 out of 5

Starring Fabio Testi The Uranium Conspiracy is a little bit like the Sicilian Connection with yellowcake replacing the heroin of Afyon oppio.

The action sequences are pretty good with Live And Let Die style speedboat chases and Fear Over The City style rooftop action. Sadly this alone is not enough.

While the use of many fascinating European locations is a bonus the major flaw with this feature is that the espionage and conspiracy elements suggested by the title are hardly explored at all. This could have been an intriguing slice of political or espionage thriller but instead the film was a largely run of the mill actioner that could comfortably be placed in the Eurocrime genre. Fulci fans will note the presence of Swedish former model Janet Agren of City of the Living Dead.
