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.

There's a whole lot of nothing going on here.

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.

This is by no means a bad film, but it should have been better considering the names involved.

For the most part the film is standard fare, with plot discrepancies countered by the film's atmosphere and star appeal.

Actioner starring Paul Newman is worth seeing, but marginally.

This film never risks being realistic or even comprehensible, but it will pass a Sunday afternoon quite pleasantly.

Reasonably entertaining old-fashioned thriller.
