Dean Martin's last leading role Mr. Ricco


Recommended Posts

I've never had the opportunity to see Mr. Ricco and thanks to TCM, I was able to watch it last week. The revenge-based script is weak, the cinematography and other technical aspects are good but not excellent, the acting from Dino's supporting cast such as Denise Nicholas and a pre-Miami Vice Phillip Michael Thomas is capable, and Dino is at his most subdued. A weak car chase and an unbelievable fistfight between Dean and the always excellent Thalmus Rasulala adds nothing and detracts from the picture. I was very disappointed in the film (but not in Dean) and in the bizarro ending. It wasn't the kind of movie worthy of Dean's last starring role considering all of the excellent films he made.
