Film Review

If you do not like plot twists and confusing thrillers there isn't much here for you. You might get more out of it if you sit back and just enjoy the ride without worrying about a destination.It is well done, almost too well done. I think that sometimes the powers that be decided to make a great movie with a good plot and script. At times it is more artistic than entertaining.From start to finish you are on the edge of your seat, but sometimes that is because you really don't understand what is going on. Thriller is not my genre, but I watch a lot of movies and this was at the very least not predictable.I have to give the acting very high marks and cinematography the highest possible marks. Directing and writing were clearly for a more important movie or a less important plot.

It’s been at least 10 years since I last saw this film, and I recently purchased the Anchor Bay release. I have to say they did an excellent job with this 2-disc release.One of the things I remembered about this film was there was a lot of talking and very little action.

Tanner is lured into a plot involving rogue CIA agent Lawrence Fassett, a plot in which Tanner is to think his three best friends are enemy agents.John Hurt is very convincing as the crazed Fassett. Using Tanner as a pawn to get back at the CIA, and specifically Maxwell Danforth (Burt Lancaster)Hurt does a masterful job playing everyone off of each other,…

Nobody should claim too much for Sam Peckinpah's final movie, yet it's an intriguing work which communicates – in the midst of a lot of confusion, grandstanding and fustian – a real sense of unease about Western pseudo-democracies and their broadcast media.Rutger Hauer plays a David Frost-type chat show host who has made a career out of grilling powerful government and military big-wigs. He finds himself caught in the middle of a CIA action against three of his former college friends, who are alleged to be traitors. CIA operative John Hurt installs state-of-the-art surveillance equipment in Hauer's home and when the three friends come over for one of their regular reunion weekends all hell breaks loose, with accusations, counter-accusations, set-ups and assassinations the order of play. Eventually it becomes clear that Hauer and his friends have been entrammelled in Hurt's plot to revenge himself on his boss, Burt Lancaster, who green-lighted the murder of Hurt's w…
