Critic Reviews for Funeral in Berlin

All Critics (7)

Faithful hardcore genre fans will find much to like here among the cloaks and daggers.... On the other hand, the pacing is slow and the twisty, sometimes flabby script might be frustrating for a viewer not fully engaged with such skullduggery.

disjointed and disappointing

Second and least successful entry in the Harry Palmer series has its moments.

Audience Reviews for Funeral in Berlin

There is something about watching a cold war spy movie made at the time. The story is as implausible as a modern treatment but the little details are just so right. Michael Caine is top draw as Harry Palmer, Oscar Homolka is a very Kruschev-like Colonel Stok, and there is some eecellent location photography. I may be a minority of one but thought this movie was better than its predecessors.

Not quite as good as the first, but Michael Caine is a delight as Harry Palmer, and plenty of twists and turns keep you guessing until the end. Oscar Homolka as Colonel Stok is also lots of fun.

A fair spy thriller with a laidback, more morose Caine as Harry Palmer, in an even bleaker plot than the first one, It has some interesting twists. but the tension is not consistent, Director Guy Hamilton can't quite reproduce Sidney J. Furie's style, the one thing that made the first film so appealing.
