I don't demand that all movies make sense. I sometimes enjoy movies that make no sense whatsoever, if that's their intention. But a thriller is supposed to hold together in some sort of logical way, isn't it?

A muddled thriller ... Peckinpah seems more interested in shooting laughable action sequences and exposing the bare breasts of his actresses than in relating a coherent story.

The structure is a mess (the film was recut against Peckinpah's wishes), which ultimately makes it difficult to tell whether its oddly compelling qualities are the result of a coherent artistic strategy or the cynical carelessness of a director sidelined.

Some individual sequences -- including a car chase early in the film - have the lunatic humor that might have made the rest of the film bearable, though probably nothing would justify the film's final blood bath.

Too bad this confusing, incoherent satirical espionage thriller turned out to be the swan song of Sam Peckinpah,who made so many good films (The Wild Bunch).

Director Sam Peckinpah's final film is certainly not among his best, but it is interesting nonetheless.

Despite some script contrivances, it finds Peckinpah high in the saddle again and full of the same old thunder and lightning.

Sam Peckinpah's final movie is stylish, has loads of nudity and other debauchery, and makes virtually no sense at all. Cheers!

A wild ride into Cold War paranoia and the dangers of technocracy.

It rattles along well enough as a thriler of the political paranoia variety.

Never been more current than it is now--and if it's imperfect, it's imperfect in exactly the right way.
