Movie Info

The United States and the Soviet Union are backing down from the Cold War, but not everyone is happy about it. Nicolai Dalchimsky (Donald Pleasence), a KGB agent, steals information regarding a secret Soviet operation that planted brainwashed intelligence agents all over America. When Dalchimsky uses those agents to blow up old military buildings, the Soviets send KGB operative Grigori Borzov (Charles Bronson) and a double agent (Lee Remick) to stop him before it's too late.

Critic Reviews for Telefon

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (9)

  • Instead of winding tighter and tighter, as a suspense story should, Telefon just winds down, rather like -- come to think of it -- a phone call between two people who don't really have much to say to each other.

  • Following Telefon is about as thrilling as being kept on hold for the better part of the day.

    July 21, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Tyne Daly is notable as a CIA staffer. Remick's teaming with Bronson is a graceful one for both players.

    March 26, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Most disappointing is Siegel's contribution: he, of all directors, should have been able to inject some life into the proceedings, but this is his most nondescript outing in years.

    February 9, 2006 | Full Review…
  • To describe Telefon as synthetic is to take it more seriously than it's taken by anyone connected with it.

    May 9, 2005 | Full Review…
  • Apart from a certain energy evident in the cutting, you'd never know it was the work of Don Siegel, a generally excellent action director.

  • In Telefon, Bronson has forsaken his Death Wish image of gratuitous violence and offers one of his most interesting and deftly thought out performances to date under Don Siegel's crisply honed direction.

  • It moves from continent to continent and city to city and manages to go noplace.
