A classic of its time, this riveting WWII drama is rife with great action sequences (the cable car!) and shock twists pulled out of thin air. Three escapist hours very well spent.

This is not a picture for sensible souls and rational minds, or for those who relish their peace and quiet. It is for children of all ages who enjoy oohing and aahing and baiting their breath and screaming and closing their eyes (but peeking through).

Alistair MacLean wrote an original screenplay that was treated with respect for the writer's unusual abilities as a master of actionful suspense. The resulting film is highly entertaining, thrilling and rarely lets down for a moment.

It may be devoid of significance of any sort, but it is nevertheless passably entertaining, and certainly better viewing than most MacLean adaptations.

It is so long (almost three hours) that it may finally bore the very action trade for which it was intended; yet it's just at that point of surface boredom that the movie aficionado will probably become entranced.
