If holes in plots bother you, Marathon Man will be maddening. But as well-crafted escapist entertainment, as a diabolical thriller, the movie works with relentless skill.
Filmmaker John Schlesinger delivers a slow-moving first half that admittedly requires a fair degree of patience from the viewer...
Schlesinger's stylish political thriller features Olivier as an old, nasty Nazi, in a splashy role that earned him Oscar nomination.
Film's notorious torture scene means adults only.
If this doesn't turn you against going to the dentist, nothing will. Terrifying, pulsating film w/Hoffman.
Needlessly complicated glossy thriller.
Scheider looks great as the well-dressed cool guy and Olivier turns in his most notoriously frightening performance.
Do acidente de carro que abre a história ao confronto final em uma estação de esgoto, o filme jamais consegue ser convincente; e a única cena realmente eficaz do longa é aquela ambientada num bairro judeu.
Although best-known for its infamous "Is it safe?" sequence, Marathon Man is a whole lot better than just one horrific scene.
Teeth-clenching, white-knuckle thriller!
Not sure this deserves to be a classic, but certainly a competently made thriller.
This William Goldman tale about an ex-Nazi resurfacing to claim his hidden cache of war booty is often needlessly convoluted but ultimately satisfying due to the dearth of screen talent involved. Interestingly the famous torture scene comes off as -meh- in the days of post-splatterhouse gore. It was interesting, too, to see again the world just prior to the internet explosion.
What begins as a taut, intriguing thriller soon becomes too complicated and desperate to defy our suspension of disbelief (as with a ridiculous shootout at a country house), and it is only worth it for Olivier's wicked villain and a fantastic scene in the New York diamond district.
An original though flawed story of a student (Dustin Hoffman) who gets involved in a sinister plot involving diamonds and a sadistic Nazi (Laurence Olivier), who wants desperately to claim what he feels is his. This is a thriller inside and out, no questioning that, but the way the story is put together leaves a lot to be desired. There are tons of holes and the way the film ends is far from satisfying. Laurence Olivier turns in a terrifying performance as the dentist drilling psycho, while Hoffman, Roy Scheider, and William Devane all give admirable performances. Director John Schlesinger has a dark, nihilistic viewpoint of New York City, and there are certain scenes in which this disturbing landscape adds a lot to the story. Sadly, his story needed more closure and less melodramatic acts to come across as completely convincing and worthwhile.
