Can I have those 90 minutes back?
This film bored me to tears! It's cheesy and, frankly, an advertisement vehicle for Las Vegas. There are endless unnecessary scenes of the casino interiors and the Vegas Strip. The acting is passable, with the exception of Elke Somer who is just not an actress. Had I paid to see this film, I'd want my money back!
They Came to Rob Las Vegas IS QUITE GOOD!
- Ernest Dalton
A very good film overall, which was not fully appreciated in its day...yet neither was the original Star Trek TV series which was cancelled, or the Shelby AC Cobra sports car, which sold poorly. Its complex plot was well-developed and interesting. The musical score is unusually dynamic and memorable. Quite violent at times, but it is a realistic extension of the plot, when one considers the dark side of some humans driven by greed. The main characters give solid performances--be they Gary Lockwood, Lee J. Cobb, or Jack Palance. Elke Sommer got her first mature and serious role in this film, which is unpredictable in its outcome and keeps the viewer interested, as long as he or she has kept up with the plot. Despite having major Hollywood stars, this film was almost ignored in the U.S.A. because it was a European co-production, rather than an American release. Other European action-adventure productions, such as That Man in Istanbul, also suffered the same fate.

After long and deep contemplation I am now convinced that Elke Sommer was the world's first virtual actress.
I have to be honest: I didn't watch the whole thing. The sleazy music in the set up should have been a clue, but the instant I recognized the voice of the "mob boss" as that of the same actor used in just about every other cheesy English dubbing attempt by our European Latin cousins, I couldn't get past it. I had to turn it off.
