Another "what if?" movie, BRASS TARGET asks us to believe that Gen. George S. Patton (Kennedy) did not die in a car accident but at the hands of assassins, as part of a gold-robbery scheme. Adapted from Nolan's The Algonquin Project
, this ludicrous film boasts a big-name cast and a
competent technical crew but still manages to be terribly boring. As if international intrigue and a far-fetched conspiracy theory aren't enough to sustain viewer interest (and they're not in this film), there is a love triangle involving Cassavetes, Loren, and von Sydow. Even crime figure Lucky
Luciano (Montague) is part of the story.
