Critic Reviews for When Eight Bells Toll

All Critics (1)

The picture occasionally feels like warmed-over 007, and Anthony Hopkins strains to prove himself an agile and devil-may-care hero. But several of the action sequences are effectively staged, and it's always a pleasure to see Robert Morley.
