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.

Highly enjoyable.

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.

one of the finest political thrillers ever made

...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
