The Wilby Conspiracy

A good old fashioned adventure story set in South Africa, as Michael Caine gets unknowingly involved in helping a black political activist (Sidney Poitier) who is running from the law & a racist Afrikaner cop. Based on a novel by Peter Driscoll, who I believe would be similar to Alistair Maclean, Desmond Bagley, Wilbur Smith and the likes. As one can expect, the movie is full of various types of chasing, some funny lines (Michael Caine to Sideny Poitier: You come to conclusions so quickly, because you aren't slowed down by thought!), betrayals and then more chasing. A good watch.
