Audience Reviews for Bullet to Beijing


Michael Caine returns as Harry Palmer almost 30 years after he last played the role. This, and one last Palmer film, were shot back to back for television, and as a result, they seem a little on the cheap side. They are well shot for 90s TV, but the quality isn't going to be anywhere near that of the original three films. It can be okay to watch, but it is rather forgettable in the long run...and Caine was too old for the part at this point. Might be worth checking out if you really like the Palmer character, but it feels pretty weak. There are moments that feel a bit too goofy, and others that just don't work. The action is rather lame too...but again, take it all with a grain of salt...it did it's best for a made for TV sequel.
