Format: DVD
This film is a solid sixties style tour in every aspect. It is a model of a "Mission Impossible' adventure and resembles an early James Bond flick *(Thunderball) in the carnival scenes and LARGO (minus the eye patch and Spectre ring) is even in THIS picture! A professor (Edward G. Robinson) plans a jewel heist and has four experts handle the theft. All of this takes place in Rio during 'Carnival' and we are shown how professionals work together to obtain the goal. A Playboy, A Safecracker, An Electronics Expert and A Military Enforcer work as the team. There is tension and struggle here that will keep you interested and the melody of the Carnival will remain with you long after the picture is over. A neat little plot twist is included in the ending scene in Rome. Well worth the viewing, not the greatest epic ever made but certainly entertaining.

Grand Slam is a surprisingly enjoyable caper flick, and much more fun than any film with middle-aged men in tight black trousers and Klaus Kinski in a sailor suit has any right to be. I say surprisingly because anything that turns up on the Blue Underground label generally turns out to be a disappointment, but this globe-trotting diversion about a heist in Rio de Janeiro during the carnival looks great and is a much better piece of disposable entertainment than either the Rat Pack or Soderberg's Oceanic efforts. Ennio Morricone's main title is a particularly blatant ripoff of Burt Bacharach and the Tijuana Brass' Casino Royale with il maestro's own special flavoring, but only adds to the fun.

Although the only extras are a photo gallery and trailer, the 2.35:1 transfer is for the most part very good, with excellent vivid color.

This movie is somewhat out dated now. When it was first released the movie was quite contemporary with an oustanding cast.
The surprise ending was very unexpected. For those who enjoy Carnival in Rio,great street scenes during Carnival this is the movie for you. Super cast.

Grand Slam is a precursor to what would have been Mario Bava's Rabid Dogs. In fact the film kinda feels like a Bava film in a way. An old professor (played by Edward G Robinson) in Rio decides to cobble together a fantastic group of thieves to pull off the ultimate heist. Several twists and turns get in the way. Ennio Morricone's wonderful theme song is also a knockout. Janet Leigh and Klaus Kinski (now there are two people I'd never thought I'd ever see in the same movie...) also star.

I think this is a terribly under-rated heist film. VERY enjoyable. I saw this one as a kid on TV and was very pleased to finally locate it on DVD. Great ironic ending.
