A strikingly dramatic, realistic and provocatively topical film.
John Frankenheimer directed, too much in love with technique, though he ably taps the neuroticism of Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, and Fredric March.
As dismal as is the complication that they and this picture present, the acknowledgment of its possibility and the discovery of how it might be resolved, with wisdom and fundamental courage, make this a brave and forceful film.
...a decent hour-long thriller trapped within the confines of a bloated misfire.
Frankenheimer's gripping political tale of conspiracy benefits from taut direction, good acting by an all-star cast, and excellent technical values, especially cinematography.
It's a good, engaging movie - great-looking, too, with top-notch photography and production design - but it tends to fall apart when you start kicking the tires and peek under the hood.
Frankenheimer's Washington, D.C., less baroque than in The Manchurian Candidate but just as hazardous
Shot in stark black and white, it shows the military not as the usual buffoons, but as ruthless right-wingers with a political agenda.
Sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Based upon a potboiling bestseller novel, Frankenheimer brings an artistic sense to the film, but he can only take it so far.
Gripping political thriller.
