'Funeral' is good.
'Brain' is weird but watchable.
'Bullet' and 'Midnight' are abysmal.
That is all.
The films from the 1990's are also worth a watch not as iconic as the first batch perhaps but still well plotted and have a decent atmosphere.
Harry Palmer is such a great character and he is so well acted by Michael Caine - not a lot of people knew that!
I strongly believe that the one big thing that makes these fascinating storylines work,and work well,is the nature of Michael Caine himself. His upbringing in the East end of a stil smashed up war torn London,gave him the rough edge and the ability to survive in a gritty environment,and this shows to advantage in each of the films. He was an inspired piece of film casting! .I believe that although many will say he went on to better things,and awards,this series of lims will remain the lasting epitaph to a great actor,who incidentally, is still working!
Qualitywise,the collection is of excellent quality,represents great value,and should sit on the shelves of any serious film buff,or student of how troubled the Cold W#ar days really were. Buy with confidence
