Critic Reviews for The Scorpio File

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Conventional double-cross Cold War espionage tale that's exciting but to be a great film could have used a more forceful direction by Michael Winner.

The strain of cynicism and paranoia that marked the majority of 70s political thrillers can be found in the effectively dour Scorpio, which feels like a Yankee version of the sort of espionage tales being churned out by John le Carré over in England.
