(3 out of 5 stars)
"'Stunts' (1977) stars Robert Forster, Fiona Lewis, Ray Sharkey, Joanna Cassidy, and the unforgetable Richard Lynch. 'Stunts' centers around the character played by Robert Forster who comes to manage the stunts on a movie set after his brother is killed performing a stunt for the same movie. He, of course, suspects foul play but does a pretty lame job of investigting as this movie focuses (no pun intended) on the stunts and the stuntmen. Fiona Lewis plays a magazine writer doing an article on stuntmen. Ray Sharkey and Joanna Cassidy play stuntmen, and Richard Lynch plays the effects coorinator. As a mystery this is pretty lame and frankly the guilty party and their motive are obvious. This however is a movie about stuntmen and really makes no pretense about being a mystery; it just uses the murder as a plot device. As an action film it is entertaining and does give an interesting, if not overly simplistic, behind the scenes glimpse of some of the most valued people in film-making whose job it is not to be seen. A nice touch was to list the actual stuntmen in the opening credits. 'Stunts' does, in my opinion, accomplish its goal of being entertaining for its 90 minute runtime and I may well watch it again.-Bob"
