646f9e108c Greg Callan's cousin, David Callan top agent/assassin for the S.I.S., was forced to retire because he had lost his nerve. Now, Callan is called back into service to handle the assassination of Schneider, a German businessman. His former boss promises Callan that he'll be returned to active status if he follows orders, but as always Callan refuses to act until he knows why Schneider has been marked for death.
This 1974 film of "Callan," lets itself down to a screenplay that is too thinly plotted and the sense of intrigue and tension has been diluted. The film is on for too long, about 15 minutes should have been edited from the final version. "Callan" is a remake of the play that started it all, "A Magnum For Schneider." Whilst that latter production was filmed entirely in the studio, the suspense and tension never let up. Every scene counted for something. This 1974 movie has a lot of location shooting but so what? It doesn't compensate for a poor narrative. The story is very good in lasting for an hour on television but at 100 minutes, it becomes tiresome and irritating. There are a few bits that are OK but that's about all. It was the right decision to have Edward Woodward and Russell Hunter reprise their respective characters.
While the notion of &quot;franchising&quot; a successful creative work is nothing new today, it was quite novel (sorry for the pun) for author James Mitchell.<br/><br/>His spy novel A Magnum for Schneider was published in 1969. It begat a successful book series; a top-rated British TV drama which ran for years, which Mitchell also wrote for; a bona fide international star (Woodward) who was so successfully identified with the role of Callan that he actually crossed the pond and starred in a TV show there called The Equalizer; and, of all things, this bizarre almost reverent attempt to milk the original cow (the first novel) one more time, in 1974, using most of the original cast, in a feature length film, and shot in colour.<br/><br/>This should be point in the review where I tell you that this whole exercise was of such high quality that Callan is as watchable today (whenever you are reading this) as it was then. If I said that, I would be lying.<br/><br/>While Mitchell had his finger on the pulse of the 60s -- a gradual turning away from traditional and respectable spy stories to something a little more violent and gritty -- it was only a taste of what was to come.<br/><br/>Which means that this film, as competent as it is, will always remain merely a curiosity for fans who remember the original. (And also remember, for example, that in the series, Callan not only returned to his &quot;job&quot; but for a while actually ran the entire Section!) Fond memories. But only memories.
