The Ipcress File Reviews

Page 1 of 2


Check out the scene where Caine and Green discuss the merits of button mushrooms and you'll appreciate that, as the actors have an excellent grasp of character, so the screenwriters have a superb eye for detail.

The best part of the film is Caine's characterization.

Ipcress proves again that one of the primal pleasures of moviegoing is a tingling, no-nonsense suspense yarn enlivened by honest good humor.

Caine skillfully resists any temptation he may have had to pep up the proceedings. In fact, his consistent underplaying adds considerably to the pull of the picture.

Cinema em Cena

Embora inferior a Funeral em Berlim, que contaria com um roteiro melhor, o primeiro filme da série ainda funciona graças à direção de Furie, à atuação irônica de Caine e à forma curiosamente monótona com que o cotidiano da espionagem é retratado.

Caine, Zulu under his belt and Alfie ahead, is the cheeky working class but aspirational bright spark hero par excellence, captured at the exact moment he became a star.

Deighton's plot is a mild headache of deceit and double-dealing that glides stylishly and with much wit around Caine's Sergeant Palmer, a cocky London bachelor and middle-ranking scion of the MoD's counter-espionage department.

A vintage performance from Caine as anti-Bond Harry Palmer keeps this from becoming a period relic.

Offers a far more authentic view of the morally ambivalent world of espionage than most spy thrillers.
