One of Hitchcock's weaker films, this Cold War espionage tale lacks tension and suspense but it bears some artistic merits, including color scheme.

Topaz is not only most entertaining. It is, like so many Hitchcock films, a cautionary fable by one of the most moral cynics of our time.

The muddled Samuel Taylor screenplay smelled so bad I wouldn't wrap fish in it.

Possibly Hitchcock's worst movie. A crashing bore.

Apollo Guide

Hitchcock's notorious reliance on stock footage and his affection for blue screening rather than adding veracity or contributing to the artifice of the filmmaking process, make it seem like his heart isn't really in it.
