The better cast and resources Jess Franco manages to get, the less original results he seems to deliver. COUNT DRACULA and JACK THE RIPPER are two good examples of decently-funded mediocrity. DARK MISSION is of the same ilk.
Plot in one sentence: Christopher Mitchum (CLOCKWORK TERROR) is our hero, an American special agent posing as a newspaperman to infiltrate the Colombian drug lord’s (the ever-decent Christopher Lee) organization.
Despite it’s obvious drabness, DARK MISSION is hard to resist because of the killer cast.
