Movie Info

Based on Charles McCarry's 1979 novel The Better Angels, Wrong is Right is set in a near future in which violence has become something of a national sport and television news has fallen to tabloid depths (a significantly bigger stretch in 1982, when the film was released.) Star Sean Connery plays Patrick Hale, a globe-trotting reporter with access to a staggering array of world leaders. As the film opens, he has ventured to the Arab country of Hegreb to interview his old acquaintance, King Ibn

Wild proceedings are packed with convoluted intrigue.

Veering wildly between a quite well-written satire on the contemporary American political scene and a very ham-fisted nuclear blackmail thriller, its sheer eccentricity is quite engaging.

The star of Wrong Is Right is Sean Connery, giving the first uncertain performance of his otherwise exemplary career.

The film is rather haphazard in its visual style and plotting, tallying up to a confused condemnation of our lack of morality.

Wrong Is Right is a cautionary tale about amorality.

An almost prophetic comedy about political spin and the internecine battles between various intelligence agencies in the US.

Audience Reviews for Wrong Is Right

Without a doubt, one of the most prescient movies I've seen. Considering that it was made in the midst of the Cold War and it concerns oil crises and war in the Middle East, it is truly ahead of its times and right in the middle of ours. The performances are adequately hokey for the genre of satire, but too over-the-top for my taste ... esp. the opening voice over. Good social criticism, worth the time.

Most strangely prophetic movie I have ever seen. Truly horrific (funny at times) in its prescience.
