Final Programme (The)

UK, English, 81 mins

  • Director: Robert Fuest
  • Writer: Robert Fuest; Michael Moorcock
  • Producer: Samuel Z. Arkoff; Roy Baird

CGiii Comment

A shallow attempt at adapting Moorcock's material - not worth the effort.

It's a camp piece of 70s British twaddle - typical of the time and place.

Times have changed, thankfully - and this should be consigned to the dustbin.


The(ir) Blurb...

After the death of his Nobel Prize-winning father, billionaire physicist Jerry Cornelius becomes embroiled in the search for the mysterious "Final Programme", developed by his father. The programme, a design for a perfect, self-replicating human being, is contained on microfilm. A group of scientists, led by the formidable Miss Brunner (who consumes her lovers), has sought Cornelius's help in obtaining it. After a chase across a war-torn Europe on the verge of anarchy, Brunner and Cornelius obtain the microfilm from Jerry's loathsome brother Frank. They proceed to an abandoned underground Nazi fortress in the Arctic to run the programme, with Jerry and Miss Brunner as the subjects.
