...not a genuinely convincing thriller, but one that makes us think we're seeing something more important than it is because of the virtues of its participants.

Do acidente de carro que abre a história ao confronto final em uma estação de esgoto, o filme jamais consegue ser convincente; e a única cena realmente eficaz do longa é aquela ambientada num bairro judeu.
| Original Score: 2/5

Although best-known for its infamous "Is it safe?" sequence, Marathon Man is a whole lot better than just one horrific scene.

Scheider looks great as the well-dressed cool guy and Olivier turns in his most notoriously frightening performance.
