A Cold War film with an intriguing psychological edge, although there's no real excitement to be had from it.

Surprisingly good identity thriller with a man who is sort of turned into some kind of metal robot. You can almost see Gould laughing during some of the early scenes but the story, good actors and sold directing wins out over an insane premise in the end. Really slow paced, not for the constant action set.

Cold war sci-fi thriller from the mid-seventies, starring Elliott Gould, Trevor Howard and Joe Bova. The good thing about this movie is - actually I am about to state the ovious here, since it's the film's main theme anyway - the viewer's constant confusion about the main character's identity. Who is this roboman, or actually the man with the steel face, who might be a Russian agent instead of who he says he is. Gould plays his role of disbeliefing FBI agent well, albeit a bit wooden at times. I liked the subjective camera techniques used from time to time, and also the way the scenes with Gould and those with Howard got intertwined to confuse the viewer as much as the FBI guys. The ending is very nice too. It's not quite what I had expected to happen, but whoever invented it made a clever choice. And perhaps it's a good thing DNA research did not exist yet in the mid-seventies, for it would have ruined the entire concept of this intriguing movie.

Extraordinarily odd film. Somewhere between spy thriller, cold war movie and sci-fi with a sad robot man on a tractor.
