... a lampoon of international espionage games and the gullible officers running Britain's MI6 like an old boy's club. Everyone on their honor and all that.

The main weakness is the absence of economic, expressive cutting and visual flow. As a result, certain half-way stretches of dialogue become tedious to watch.

The mixture of mayhem and heehaw is particularly tricky to handle, and not even the sure hand of Director Reed has always achieved a smooth blend.

As hilarious as it is absurd, this droll comedy about spies in Cuba stars the prodigiously talented Guinness.

... a dryly witty satire of the spy game.

This is a quirky, often quite sardonic little film that starts off as a mild and witty comedy before shifting gears and becoming almost James Bond-like.

Polished, diverting entertainment, brilliant in its comedy but falling apart towards the end when undertones of drama, tragedy and message crop up.
October 3, 2006
Incredibly droll, this Graham Greene-scripted black comedy offers a can't miss premise.

A real 'winds of change' film, with traditional values crumbling in the heat of pre-revolutionary Cuba. Guinness is wonderful.

For those who regard Alec Guinness as the niftiest little con man on the screen, we will guarantee Our Man in Havana to be a source of immeasurable fun.

Guinness is in above-average form, and Ernie Kovacs is wonderful as the callous but charming government official with a soft spot for Guinness's daughter.
