It is a spy movie that commits the unforgivable sin of losing track of its plot.
Scrambled technique has the effect of a series of evasive mannerisms, to keep anyone from meeting the story head-on.
A clever, brisk, entertaining spy picture that has a lot more Ken Russell in it than you might suspect.
No mais fraco exemplar da série, Harry Palmer perde a personalidade irreverente, enfrenta uma ameaça absurda encabeçada por uma caricatura em um filme aborrecido e sem pé nem cabeça.
Russell slams the I-Spy trappings into disjunctively eccentric frenzies
It's far-fetched, but it's fun.
Russell attempts to lampoon the spy genre by turning a Harry Palmer (the anti James Bond) film into a James Bond movie. It has all the subversiveness of a Ken Russell film so his fans will probably enjoy the outing, but fans of the first two films (such as myself) will be somewhat disappointed. Michael Caine's characterization of Harry is spot on as always.
Enjoyable if dated, they are still using punch cards to program their computers!, espionage thriller with a solid cast. Caine is cool as ice as the reluctant protagonist casting a jaundiced eye on all the shenanigans going on around him. Francoise Dorleac is a lovely mystery woman although her character seems to vanish at several key points in the film when it feels like she would be there. This might be because she was killed in a traffic accident while the picture was still filming necessitating a rethinking to still make her completed work usable. She's quite magnetic, her resemblance to her sister Catherine Deneuve is striking, and her death cut short a career that was already very successful in France and was starting to expand worldwide. Ed Begley also stands out, having a great time as a crazy old coot. Subtle he ain't but memorable for sure.
The most ambitious and fanciful of the original trio of Harry Palmer films, this might easily be confused with a James Bond movie. Caine is as good as ever but the down-to-earth Palmer seems to have ascended to a level that his prevoius incarnations would have been uncomfortable with. Cast and locations are excellent.
A substandard Bond clone tackily directed by amateurish hack Ken Russell. The plot is meandering and its overlong, but on the plus side it features Caine at his youthful peak and some handsome snow covered Finnish locations.
