This is by no means a bad film, but it should have been better considering the names involved.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
For the most part the film is standard fare, with plot discrepancies countered by the film's atmosphere and star appeal.
There's a whole lot of nothing going on here.
Actioner starring Paul Newman is worth seeing, but marginally.
| Original Score: 3/5
Reasonably entertaining old-fashioned thriller.
The screenplay by Walter Hill... has very little to do with character and motivation and everything to do with the incidents and the mechanics of the spy trade.
| Original Score: 2/5
The movie is irritating in its refusal to make things clear; if spy movies are going to work like clockwork, they have to be put together with some care.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
This film never risks being realistic or even comprehensible, but it will pass a Sunday afternoon quite pleasantly.
